Offered on campus
Our Ph.D. program specializes in health economics.
Students begin with rigorous Ph.D. core training in economic theory and econometrics, emphasizing microeconomic theory and microeconometrics. We offer a two-course field sequence in health economics as well as a course focusing on the institutional context of health, healthcare, and health insurance.
Importantly, students will also take Ph.D. minor courses in a field such as biostatistics, epidemiology, bioethics, or health policy, giving them a background that will facilitate working in the interdisciplinary teams with whom health economists often interact.
In addition to econometric theory, we also offer a yearlong empirical econometrics sequence emphasizing statistical packages, working with large datasets, solving problems in applied econometrics, and writing proposals.
Our program features strong disciplinary training in microeconomic theory, econometrics, and health economics enhanced with exposure to other related disciplines central to health and healthcare.
