Teaching Health Economics Pre-Congress Session Recordings
Saturday, July 8, 2017 | iHEA World Congress
Health economics is a relative newcomer to the economics discipline and economics pedagogy. Microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics have served as foundations of economics curricula for over fifty years, and public finance, international economics, and industrial organization date back even further. Many university economics departments have only recently instituted health economics courses, and at many universities health economics courses reside outside of economics departments, in schools of public health, business, or nursing. Starting with the 2011 Toronto congress, Jim Burgess led efforts for iHEA to present, share, and disseminate path-breaking methods and research on teaching health economics. The 2017 pre-congress "Teaching Health Economics" (THE) workshop, organized by Allen Goodman, Emma Frew, Maia Platt, Elizabeth Seidler and Joanne Spetz, sought to bring together teachers of health economics to share their methods and resources with colleagues. The pre-congress session was sponsored by the Health Economics Unit of the University of Cape Town, and held in memory ofJim Burgess who initiated the biennial 'THE' pre-congress sessions in 2011.
Presenters generously agreed to be recorded so that their contributions could be shared more widely. Below are the available recordings from the pre-congress session.

The International Health Economics Association was formed to increase communication among health economists, foster a higher standard of debate in the application of economics to health and health care systems, and assist young researchers at the start of their careers.
