MSc 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 HTA practitioners and external academic experts, enriching our the teaching of our MSc Health Technology Assessment (HTA) by bringing a greater global perspective.

Dr Eleanor Grieve and Dr Claudia Geue have been co-leading the MSc in Health Technology Assessment since September 2021 and have been using their extensive research experience to enhance the teaching components of this programme. Both hold a ‘Recognising Excellence in Teaching Fellowship’. As MSc co-leads, they are constantly reviewing latest research developments and teaching needs and are very excited to be adding two new courses, ‘Choice Experiments’ and ‘Decision Analytical Modelling and Early HTA’, to the MSc HTA in 2022/23.

MSc 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 data sources: 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 HTA Dr Eleanor Grieve 

Eleanor is a 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.
