Course overview This course is an introduction to the economics of health and healthcare. Students will apply economic reasoning to contemporary issues involving the organization, cost, and distribution of resources in the health sector. The course will focus primarily on healthcare in the United States but will include coverage of other nations as well. Students will be expected to apply concepts from Intermediate Microeconomics and Econometrics throughout the course.
