What is this track?

This track is designed to give the ability to leverage essential theoretical frameworks and real-world data, enhancing decision-making and operational efficiency within the health care sector nationallly and internationally.

You’ll learn to answer questions like:

  • Which policies can successfully prevent inequalities in health?
  • How should we plan for the future ageing populations occurring in many nations?
  • Is intervention one better than intervention two in reducing out-of-pocket payment on utilization of care?
  • Government and health care leaders need to tackle complicated issues with limited resources. In this track, we will provide you with the essential quantitative tools to become a critical consumer of empirical evidence. This will make you attractive to a wide range of organizations, but will also enable you to develop your own skills as a leader, employee and researcher.
