AHED Workshop

  • The 10th Annual Australian Health Economics Doctoral Workshop will be held in conjunction with the AHES Conference 2021.
  • AHES will award the A$500 AHED Workshop Prize for Best Presenter to one of the students for excellence in their oral presentation.
  • Four to six research abstracts on any topic in health economics will be competitively selected for inclusion in the program.
  • The workshop is an excellent opportunity to meet other students and health economists before the main conference.
  • All abstracts submitted by PhD students to the main AHES conference will be automatically considered for the AHED workshop. (N.B. Those papers that are not selected for the AHED workshop will be automatically considered for the main AHES conference).
  • To be considered for the AHED workshop, students should submit an abstract via the AHES Conference 2021 abstract submission system (by the submission date Sunday 20th June 2021) indicating they are a Higher Degree by Research Student.
