We are looking for a PhD student within the department Health Technology Assessment (HTA), a department that is recognized for its independent and excellent research in HTA, health economics and health outcomes research.

Health Technology Assessment - our projects

The main goal of HTA is estimating the value of innovations in health care. Our department contributes to important and influential methodological innovations. It is dedicated to stimulating the use of cost-effectiveness information in healthcare decision making. This requires that evidence about effectiveness and costs from various sources is synthesized into probabilistic decision-analytic models. Our department has a large and experienced team of researchers, who develop and implement such models. This work is often funded by policy makers or manufacturers to inform reimbursement decisions. Examples are the technology appraisals that are conducted by the HTA department for the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) in the United Kingdom and the National Health Care Institute (ZIN) in the Netherlands.
