Ph.D. in health economics in public health departments
vxi posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHi all, I've applied to a mix of straight economics ph.d. programs and also health economics programs in public health / health policy departments. While rankings for econ programs are easily found, I'm having difficulty identifying how good health econ programs are. It seems well-known that Wharton's health care & management and Harvard's health policy programs are far and away the top two, most respected programs. But beyond that? Many public health schools have programs, but how good are they? Does anyone here know? I'm wondering about programs like at UNC, Michigan, Berkeley, Emory, etc...? thanks!
