The goal of the International Doctoral Courses and Seminars in Health Economics and Policy is to offer advanced and highly specialized courses in health economics and policy. These courses will also be supported by seminars and workshops with leading international experts. The courses provide advanced and practical training in the analytical tools required to address pertinent research questions in health economics along with insights and examples from current developments in the field.
The International Doctoral Courses and Seminars in Health Economics and Policy are intended for PhD students from Swiss universities as well as foreign universities who wish to enhance their specific knowledge and sharpen their capabilities in the field of health economics and policy. Researchers with a PhD in economics and related disciplines as well as health researchers with a significant interest in economics who wish to deepen their knowledge of some topics can also be admitted.
This program is being offered within the framework of the Swiss School of Public Health (SSPH+) in collaboration with the Institute of Economics (IdEP) and the various partners of SSPH+ (Universities of Basel, Lausanne, Lucerne, and Zurich as well as the «Ecole Romande de Santé Publique») will offer specialized courses for the participants.
The SSPH+ was founded in 2005 as the national coordinating body for the promotion of postgraduate university education and the research in the fields of public health and health economics. The School aims to provide students and professionals in the field of public health and health economics the best possible preparation for their role as researchers and experts in the health domain. It is a collaboration between the Universities of Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, Lugano, Zurich, Neuchâtel and the University of Lucerne.
