HERC offers several courses in health economics for external participants.


It was with regret that we had to postpone our Spring/Summer 2020 classroom-based short courses due to the COVID-19 situation. 

However, we were keen to convert our existing short course materials into an online format as quickly as possible. After a planning phase, our Online 1-day Introduction to Health Economics course was launched and successfully took place w/c 27th July. An online alternative of our 3-day Applied Methods of Cost-Effectiveness Analysis course is scheduled to take place the week commencing 16th November 2020.

Our website will be updated accordingly, so please remember to check-in for future communications.

Most importantly, we would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the inconvenience caused and to thank all of those who have been affected by the current and ongoing situation. Your patience and understanding, during what has been a very difficult and uncertain time for us all, is much appreciated.
