University: Monash University
Department: Centre for Health Economics
Location: Melbourne, Australia
The Centre for Health Economics (CHE), Faculty of Business and Economics Monash University, has been at the forefront of health economics teaching and research in Australia for more than 13 years. As one of the two largest concentrations of senior health economists in Australia, it has a strong track record of health economics research, teaching and community service. Its more than 600 publications represent a significant part of the country's total health economics output. The overriding goal of the Centre is to undertake and promote high quality health economics research and teaching, with both a national and international focus.
The MPhil is generally a 100% research degree signifying that the candidate has successfully completed a course of research training under the supervision of one of the Centre's academic staff, and satisfied the examiners that he/she can carry out a research project and analyse critically the results. A number of major thesis/minor coursework options are also available. An MPhil thesis should make a contribution to an existing body of knowledge, by applying, clarifying, critiquing or interpreting that knowledge. The normal length of candidature is 18 months (full-time) or 3 years (part-time). Enrolment can be by internal or external mode.
