Health economics research was established at the CTC over 15 years ago.

We aim to contribute to the development of healthcare programs, in Australia and internationally, by incorporating patient-centred, economic outcomes into clinical trials of diagnostic tests, new treatments and models of care. We provide analysis on the efficiency, effectiveness and value of a healthcare program to facilitate the policy decision-making in the health sector. Additionally, we contribute to the development of new methods of outcome assessment and resource measurement, as well as conducting research into preference elicitation and health equity.

We have an active teaching program in the University of Sydney's undergraduate medical program and postgraduate public health degrees, and supervise higher degree research students from economics and health backgrounds undertaking an MPhil or PhD.
