Centre for Health Economics

The Centre for Health Economics has one of the largest concentrations of senior health economists in Australia. The calibre of our staff is evident through our research output; both in quality publications and community impact.

Many of our staff also hold fellowships and editorial roles and are regularly invited to present at major conferences.

We are also proud of the contributions our PhD students make to our discipline.
