Economic thinking has become increasingly important in health care. We teach students the quantitative and econometric tools to analyze health related issues such as insurance-design, individual health behaviour and provision of health care services.
- Tools: microeconomics, behavioral economics and econometrics.
- Practical experience: Internship and master-thesis in various firms and institutions (health insurers, consultancies, government agencies and research institutes).
