Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment (HEHTA) covers a broad set of activities relating to the appraisal of health service interventions including policies, procedures, devices, drugs and diagnostics.  Our research is divided into seven programmatic research themes, each led by a senior member of the research group. As well as academic and research staff our team includes several full time PhD students, support staff and affiliate and honorary staff.  In addition to research projects, publications and presentations,our staff are also involved in a number of teaching activities through our series of successful continuing professional development(CPD) courses that attract over 100 research practitioners to Glasgow each year to learn about state of the art methods for Health Technology Assessment (HTA).  A number of the courses are based on the'Handbooks in Health Economic Evaluation' series published by Oxford University Press.  Our MSc in Health Technology Assessment was launched in September 2013. It is directed by Dr Jim Lewsey and delivered by members of the team, cementing HEHTA within the academic life of Glasgow University and helping to train the next generation of HTA practitioners.
