The M.S. in Pharmacoeconomics is delivered through the university’s College of Pharmacy, and administered under the Department of Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy. This course of study is designed to provide working professionals with the ability to critique, apply, and conduct applied pharmacoeconomic research to improve clinical decision making.
The M.S. in Pharmacoeconomics (INTL) program’s core curriculum consists of ten courses, or 30 credits, and takes approximately 22 months to complete. There is one foundational course that serves as an introduction to pharmaceutical microeconomics. There is a core of five courses that serves as the bulk of this program’s curriculum. The classes within this core discuss the topics of Ethics in Drug Production, Distribution, and Use, Commercial Applications of Pharmacoeconomic Principles, Pharmaceutical Microeconomics, Pharmaceutical Health Economics, and Pharmacoeconomic Modeling. In addition, there is a seminar and a handful of elective courses that students can select based on their personal interests and professional goals.
Through this thorough and diverse curriculum, international students may learn how to apply economic principles in order to understand and describe the use of pharmaceutical services and medication. Using the principles honed through the coursework, graduates of this program may successfully be able to participate in a team to design and evaluate interventions to improve economic, clinical, and humanistic outcomes within the health system.
