Program description

Online MSc Health Technology Assessment

Today’s technology has the potential to prevent, diagnose and treat disease like never before. Out of 25,000 compounds that start in the laboratory, 5 make it to market and only 1 actually recoups what was invested.1 Our online program will arm you with the tools to drive those crucial practice and policy decisions.
