MSc Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment (HTA)

Collage of diverse faces

HEHTA is fortunate to be able to tap into its multinational team of colleagues as well as networks of global health economics and HTA practitioners and external academic experts, enriching the teaching of our MSc Health Technology Assessment by bringing a greater global perspective.

Dr Eleanor Grieve and Dr Claudia Geue have been co-leading the MSc in Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment since September 2021. Both hold a ‘Recognising Excellence in Teaching Fellowship’ and have been using their extensive research experience to enhance the teaching components of this programme. As MSc co-leads, they are constantly reviewing research activities and teaching needs to incorporate the latest developments in the field onto the MSc.

MSc HE and HTA Course Coordinator Dr Claudia Geue

Claudia is a Senior Lecturer and has been working for the department for over 10 years. She has extensive expertise in several subject areas, including the use of real-world evidence in healthcare decision making, economic evaluation in clinical trials, and the use of natural experiments to evaluate public health interventions. Claudia leads various data-driven projects, involving a variety of routine data: Scottish Morbidity Records, the Prescribing Information System, the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD), the Scottish Longitudinal Study, the Scottish Care Home Census, the Scottish Care Information – Diabetes, and the Scottish Stroke Care Audit.

MSc Coordinator HE and HTA Dr Eleanor Grieve 

Eleanor is a Senior Lecturer and has been working for the department for over 10 years after having completed her Master of Public Health (MPH) at the University of Glasgow. Eleanor’s research interests include economic evaluation of public health and complex interventions, both trial-based and using decision analytic modelling. Having worked in international development prior to joining academia, Eleanor has a strong research interest in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and leads HEHTA’s Global HTA research theme. This includes a portfolio of research funded by the NIHR, MRC, EPSRC, GCRF, DFID and the BMGF. Eleanor’s thesis was on a methodological approach to measure the impact of HTA. Helping to share more relevant insights and lessons in an era of investment and expansion of HTA for LMICs through better understanding of HTA’s role in delivering health outcomes and value for money at the system level is something she is passionate about.
