Why You Should Attend
The Content: This health economics course not only provides you with an explanation of concepts and methods, it also discusses the integration of health economic evaluations in clinical development and brand marketing plans (with practical examples), as well as the perspective of the decision maker - including examples of successful applications of health economic evaluations.
The Expert: Prof. Dr. Lieven Annemans not only has a wide international experience in health economic evaluations (over 200 completed projects with over 30 different pharmaceutical or medical device companies) but also built a very strong reputation within the international pharmaco-economic community as a high-impact trainer. Throughout his career, Lieven has worked in pharmaceutical companies, in health care policy environments, in consultancy and in academic positions.
The Health Economics for Non-Health-Economists course is the only available public training course delivered by Prof. Lieven Annemans on the topic of health economics.
What is the difference with the Basics of Health Economics online self-study programme ?
- The 2-day course has more breadth and depth in both theory (lectures) and practice (group work). For instance, the 2-hour module on the “Guidelines for Health Economic Evaluations” is highly valued because of the interactive group work session on a health economic publication.
- In a classroom training, whether face-to-face or virtual, you learn a lot from your industry peers because of the exchange of experiences and ideas and the discussions about issues you face in your function. The (physical) face-to-face version of the 2-day course is obviously most impactful in that respect because the Q&A sessions are very rich and because of the many opportunities for conversations with your peers outside the formal programme.
- Participating in the 2-day course gives the opportunity to meet Prof. Dr. Lieven Annemans and discuss your own projects/issues with him during the breaks.

Prof. Lieven Annemans is very experienced in leading interactive sessions and will actively engage participants in discussions. In addition, two exercises will be used to help bring theory into practice.
One of the most valuable aspects of attending any CELforPharma course is not only being able to have your specific questions answered by a leading expert, but also having the opportunity to share experiences and have in-depth discussions with your international peers.
|The typical audience size of our courses ranges from 6 to 24 (max) participants.|
Who Should Attend?
As the course title suggests, this course is designed for non-health-economists.
As pharma companies are facing ever-increasing hurdles to optimise market access for their brands, all managers in product development and marketing should attend this course so that they can contribute to a successful integration of health economic evaluations into clinical and brand plans.
While most of the examples and exercises discussed in this course are about pharmaceuticals, this course is equally relevant to, and has always been highly valued by (see testimonials), executives from the medical devices industry.
