Health Economics




Are you interested in the care sector and curious about the economic foundations and practical implementation of health-related issues? Then FSA Health Economics is the perfect event for you! This event offers ambitious, financially oriented students with an interest in healthcare the opportunity to contact different companies in the commercial health sector in in an informal manner. Such companies include pharmaceutical companies, consultancy offices focused on the healthcare sector, health insurance and hospitals.

The field of Health Economics developed in response to the growing demand for analytical specialists within the healthcare sector. As the number of health problems and the ageing population continue to grow, there is an increased need for economic evaluation and models within the field of healthcare. Additionally, health care must respond to the development of new technologies.

The second edition of Health Economics will take place on the 14th of March 2018.
