The Economics Department at IUPUI is now accepting applications for the entering class of Fall of 2012. Fellowship support will be offered on a competitive basis.
The program specializes in Health Economics. Students begin with PhD core training in economic theory and econometrics, emphasizing microeconomic theory and microeconometrics. We offer a two-course field sequence in health economics as well as a course focusing on the institutional context of health, health care, and health insurance. Importantly, students will also take elective courses such as biostatistics, epidemiology, bioethics, or health policy, giving them a background that will facilitate working in the interdisciplinary teams with whom health economists often interact. In addition to econometric theory, we will also offer a year-long empirical econometrics sequence, emphasizing statistical packages, working with large datasets, and problems in applied econometrics. We offer strong disciplinary training in micro theory, econometrics, and health economics enhanced with exposure to other related disciplines central to health and health care.
We also offer a field specialization in the Economics of Nonprofits/Philanthropy. The structure is similar to that in Health Economics, including the elective courses to complement the Economics training. These elective offerings will allow students to take, for example, courses in IUPUI’s unique Philanthropic Studies program and to interact with the renowned IU Center on Philanthropy.
