International Health Technology Assessment, Pricing and Reimbursement

Two years ago, HEDS set up a web-based taught programme on International Health Technology Assessment, Pricing and Reimbursement (IHTA). It is a fully modular programme, with students able to take individual or blocks of modules and build them up to either a Certificate, Diploma or Masters Degree in IHTA. Some students have registered for one or two modules with the aim of adding specific skills, refreshing their knowledge or simply getting a fresh perspective on their daily work.

The first students are currently completing their dissertations - developing a value proposition and associate research programme for a product of their choice. It is, therefore, timely to let everyone know that recruitment is drawing to an end for the third summer intake of students - six weeks are left.  Further information for prospective students is available on the course mini-site.
