About

The Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation

The Centre, also known as CHEME, was founded in 2001 and is one of three health economics centres in Wales. Research is conducted on a local and national level within in Wales but there are also strong collaborative links with health services researchers across the UK and Europe.

CHEME is active across a wide range of health economic and medicines evaluation research interests and these can be broadly categorised (i) economic evaluation alongside clinical trials; (ii) pharmacoeconomics; and (iii) health service evaluation. The Centre also has very close links with Public Health Wales and has expertise in research regarding the health economics of cancer, dementia, economics of supporting people living with disabilities and rural health.

Programme Structure

Structure

IMSCaR uses the ‘four paper’ model for its PhD programme whereby the thesis comprises four pieces of independent but related research that are of a publishable standard in a high quality peer reviewed journal.

In addition to the support of the research project’s supervisors and from fellow postgraduate research and professional researchers within IMSCaR’s Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation, there will also be the opportunity to undertake taught modules at postgraduate level as well as attend workshops and courses provided for postgraduate research students by the University’s Academic Development Unit. Any taught modules and courses will not count as credits towards this or any other qualification but, if identified as being of developmental value by the student and the supervisory team, will provide the extra skills and knowledge needed to undertake postgraduate research.
