Companies are invited to pitch their company/case and what they need help with that the students can provide.

Norway Health Tech is aiming to match talents and specialist within “Health Economics, Policy and Management” who are looking for opportunities to bring on their updated knowledge, with companies seeking growth and improvement within healthcare policy, law and regulation.

Such collaboration and cooperation will help us to benefit our healthcare system and support talents and experts to deliver their excellence.

The students are specialized in the topics below:

  • health economics (including economic evaluations)
  • healthcare policy and management, and
  • health law and regulation.

The competence the students derive during their studies is highly relevant for both the public and private sector.

17:00 “Speed dating” between companies and students

It will be an informal atmosphere, open for dialogue and we will serve pizza and soda!

What is an internship?

During their studies, the students can complete an internship and receive 5 ECTS (see the course HMAN4230 offered by HELED).

The purpose of an internship is to give the student an insight into the daily work in the company. At the same time, the company can benefit from the student’s knowledge, and get help to investigate or analyze a relevant topic.

During the internship, the company shall provide the student with relevant tasks that are possible to solve with the student’s level of knowledge. Previously, students have worked with economic evaluations, early health technology assessments (HTA), budget impact analysis, and issues related to costings and payment systems. They have also performed literature reviews.

Master’s thesis:

All students write a master’s thesis (30 ECTS). The content and requirements for the thesis depend on the topic and the student’s chosen specialization. The students develop a research proposal that will be accepted by a committee, and the student will be appointed a supervisor from the university (Oslo, Rotterdam, Innsbruck or Bologna).

We invite companies and students to register!
