With the Online Master in Health Economics and Pharmacoeconomics you will obtain in-depth knowledge of the different agencies for the evaluation of medicines and medical technologies and of the main consulting firms and insurance entities. You will get a global vision of one of the fastest growing and most important sectors in the world in the area of health.

You will learn to apply the basic and fundamental aspects of the techniques and instruments for the economic evaluation of drugs and medical technologies through cost-effectiveness, cost-utility and cost-benefit analysis. To do this, you will focus on the use of statistical and econometric techniques in economic analysis in areas as diverse as the relationship between spending and income, the behaviour of drug prescribers, the preparation of pharmacy budgets or the study of determinants of the effectiveness of a treatment.

With the help of experts in this area, both academics and professionals in the sector, you will analyse the justification and effectiveness of the main regulation and financing policies for medicines in a health system. You will also learn to apply the instruments of rational use of medicines, in order to guarantee the best possible use both from the point of view of effectiveness and the efficiency of pharmacological interventions.

Through didactic materials designed by the teaching team, you will carry out analyses on the economic operation of the health sector and the economic behaviour of the agents that are involved with it, with special reference to the application of economic concepts and instruments for the management of health services.

At the end of the main subjects of the master, a practical module is presented in which you will work on modeling techniques within the framework of economic evaluation studies of drugs and medical technologies. With this module you will understand the basic concepts and principles that characterize economic analysis and use economic language with ease.

Methodology

At UPF-BSM we are committed to a flexible and dynamic online model, which aims to place the participant at the centre of the process so that they are the owner of their learning process.

To facilitate day-to-day management and the achievement of your academic goals, the program is structured into subjects, with which you will acquire knowledge and instrumental and aptitude skills.

All this, while having 24/7 access to the virtual environment so that you can organize your study without schedules and at your own pace. In this way, you can combine it with your work and personal life, making the most of the time you have for it.

01.

Didactic and interactive teaching materials

Various materials and formats will make your experience more motivating and challenging: videos, case studies, content maps and downloadable resources. Designed and updated periodically by professionals and experts in the field, they put at your disposal the latest knowledge, skills, and tools to take your career to the next level.

02.

Active and collaborative learning

Participation and discussion with your classmates and teachers are essential and enriching for the collaborative learning process. We will provide you with various tools such as the Discussion Forum, where you can propose new topics for debate, comment on and answer questions presented by the teacher or give feedback to interesting comments.

03.

Personalized support

To make your experience more tangible and immediate, you will have the support of fundamental people such as the teacher or expert tutor, who will guide you through the subjects of the program. The program manager will help you in the monitoring and general operation of the program, as well as in the management of procedures or access to other services of the university. And the professional career advisor will guide you in improving your personal brand and in the search for professional opportunities.

04.

Mentor

Throughout the program, you will develop your final project and, for this, you will be assigned an expert mentor on the subject, who will be in charge of advising you and supervising its development until its submission and final defence.

Evaluation

The evaluation of each subject will be carried out as follows:

  • 75% of the qualification will correspond to the average of the scores obtained in the final exercises of each of the four teaching units. To pass each module, the participant must have a score equal to or greater than 5 in three of the four final exercises of each didactic unit. The final exercise is considered passed if the participant obtains a minimum of 5 answers out of 10 (or equivalent figure if the number of questions is other than 10). In the event that at least the final exercises of three didactic units have not been passed, the module is automatically pending.
  • 25% of the grade will correspond to the grade obtained in the individual or group activity established for each module.
  • In the case of not passing the module, a period of time will be established during the academic year during which the student will have the possibility of doing, for the second and last time, another final exercise for the teaching units not passed. The individual or group activity carried out for each module will not have a recovery period.

Tools

The learning process is characterized by its flexibility, since, in the virtual learning environment, the structure of the school calendar and the diversity of multimedia resources which are made available to the student allows them to acquire knowledge in a self-regulated manner.

The support of the teaching staff and interaction with classmates is carried out by making use of a wide variety of communication channels that facilitate proximity and didactic dialogue. The completion of activities and the Master's Final Project or Postgraduate Final Project is oriented towards professional practice for a high-impact professional transfer.

 

Professional Future

The Master in Health Economics and Pharmacoeconomics provides specialized training in the economics and management of health services and medicine (pharmacoeconomics).

Management in the healthcare and pharmaceutical sector is understood in the broadest sense and includes the management of healthcare services of administrations and other public bodies, centres and services of healthcare institutions at any of the healthcare levels, providers of healthcare pharmaceutical services, drug and medical technology evaluation agencies, as well as pharmaceutical industry, and distributors, insurance entities, and consultancies in this sector.

Student profile

The Online Master's Degree in Health Economics and Pharmacoeconomics brings together professionals of more than 20 nationalities from the health and pharmaceutical sectors, as well as professionals from the economics and business areas. The online course is tailored to the needs and requirements of experienced professionals and recent graduates who wish to expand their knowledge in these areas, so it does not require previous knowledge of economics from the participants.

Due to the high international participation in the master's degree, it offers great opportunities for mutual enrichment and networking with other professionals in the sector, promoting links and work synergies with different experts and fellow students.
