Ireland Masterclass in Health Economics

Extremely well organised and had an impressive line up of presenters. I really enjoyed meeting new people and getting an opportunity to discuss our research. Also, the location was beautiful.

At the Ireland Masterclasses in Health Economics, internationally prominent senior researchers share their cutting-edge research with early-career health economists (assistant professors, post-doctoral researchers, and PhD students). The event also includes professional development sessions, such as a “Meet the Editors” event to discuss publication strategies with the editors of health economics journals.

The event is run on a strictly non-profit basis. Generous support from sponsors allows us to cap delegate fees. Those fees cover all classes as well as lunches, tea/coffee during breaks, and a dinner to be held during the week.

Organizers:

  • Ciaran O’Neill, Queens University Belfast & National University of Ireland, Galway
  • John Mullahy, University of Wisconsin & National University of Ireland, Galway
  • John Cawley, Cornell University & National University of Ireland, Galway
