Course Description

Professional Diploma in Health Economics (CME/CPD Approved)

Institute of Public Administration

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 blend of distance education and weekend seminars at the IPA in Dublin. Alongside course material, students receive all the essential textbooks.

This course commences in October 2018.
