The Australian Health Economics Society (AHES) is pleased to announce that the Australian Health Economics Doctoral (AHED) Workshop will be once again held in conjunction with the AHES Conference as a virtual event.
The aim of the workshop is to gather PhD students in health economics for an exchange of knowledge with some of the most senior leaders in the field of health economics in Australia. Students will have the opportunity to engage in high level discussion with experts in the field of health economics as well as network with fellow PhD students. Up to 4-6 research abstracts on any topic in health economics will be competitively selected for inclusion in the program. Selected submissions will have the opportunity to present their work on the day of the workshop.
The AHED Workshop Prize for Best Presenter ($500) will also be awarded to one of the students for excellence in their oral presentation. All students are encouraged to attend the workshop, even if not presenting.
The first author of each abstract must be a PhD student and the student must present work from their PhD. Students will be invited to present at the AHED workshop based on the quality of their abstract submission to the main conference.
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).
The Workshop will be on Monday 20th September before the AHES Conference. The workshop will feature presentations from 4-6 selected PhD students. Each presentation will be followed by a commentary from a Discussant providing opportunity for the student to receive constructive feedback on their work, followed by time for general audience questions and discussion.
There is no registration fee for attendees of the main AHES conference participating in the workshop, but there will be a registration fee for participants who are not attending the main AHES conference (further details on the registration fee will be available soon).
