Who is it for?

This programme is for individuals looking to transition into leadership roles from:

  • the pharmaceutical and medical technology industries
  • health insurance
  • healthcare management
  • governmental and non-governmental organisations.

What you'll learn

The programme runs over 2 years and covers:

  • The complexities of healthcare regulations and governance.
  • How policy decisions impact health systems.
  • Value assessment models and why value assessment results in differences in coverage across settings.
  • The impacts of healthcare interventions on core health policy objectives.

NICE provides around a quarter of the programme's teaching. We cover a range of topics, including using real-world evidence in our assessments. Learn how NICE makes decisions and understand the trade-offs, uncertainties and challenges our independent committees face when making these important decisions.

A great combination of well-structured academic lectures, hands-on seminars from LSE faculty, and real-life experience from NICE experts.
