Course description

Online MSc Health Technology Assessment

Today’s technology has the potential to prevent, diagnose and treat disease like never before. Out of 25,000 compounds that start in the laboratory, 5 make it to market and only 1 actually recoups what was invested.1 Our online program will arm you with the tools to drive those crucial practice and policy decisions.

After completing our online Health Technology Assessment program, you’ll have the ability to appraise evidence and understand the consequences of technology in order to prioritize its use. It’s this practical know-how that gives recent graduates or professionals working in the pharmaceutical industry, government agencies or research, the means to grow their careers.

Our distance learning program, which is only one of a few such programs in the world, is delivered by the College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences, home to world leading expertise across an impressive diversity of disciplines. Delivered by the Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment (HEHTA) research team, the program offers multidisciplinary insights in data science, health economics, analytical decision modelling and patient-reported outcome measures, as it’s happening, right now.
