Centre for Health Policy, University of Melbourne Visiting Health Economic Scholars Program

The purpose of this program is to assist early career health economic researchers (i.e. Post Docs and PhD students who are in the latter stages of their degree) to spend time at Centre for Health Policy (CHP), University of Melbourne, Australia.


CHP has a very active Health Economics Unit which undertakes and publishes research on a diverse range of topics. More information on our research can be found on the Health Economics Unit website.


Visiting scholars can both propose their own research activities, or seek to collaborate on projects proposed by researchers within CHP (e.g. health economic research to inform Lancet Commission on Diabetes).


The program will assist the scholar by providing accommodation and part board for a period of one month in a residential college such as Graduate House, or receive equivalent funding for non-residential accommodation. Accommodation at Graduate House is typically available during semester breaks in June/ July, or December/ January, but maybe available at other times of the year subject to availability. It is open to both Australian and international health economic researchers.

The deadline for the initial round of applications is 26 March 2017.
