Course Description

Professional Diploma in Health Economics

The Professional Diploma in Health Economics – the first course of its kind in Ireland – is a one-year, part-time programme that examines the economics of healthcare provision. There is a palpable need for those interested in healthcare in Ireland to understand the economic rationale behind the allocation of resources in this vital sector. To meet this need, the Diploma explores the fundamentals of economics, the distinctive features of healthcare economics and the different mechanisms for evaluating spending on healthcare.

Expressly designed for those who want to obtain a nationally recognised qualification while remaining in work, the Diploma is delivered through a blended learning model that allows study from anywhere in the country.

The programme is delivered through a student-friendly blended learning model. Students attend webinars and s0me classroom-based seminars. They are supported in their studies by online resources and bespoke course material.
