2nd International Fellowship on Health Technology Assessment (HTA) from 31st March to 6th April,2013.



About HTA
 Health Technology Assessment (HTA), as you may know, is a multi-disciplinary field of policy analysis that examines the medical, economic, social and ethical implications of the incremental value, diffusion and use of a medical technology in healthcare. This program will be very helpful for the biomedical engineers also as it would help them to know about the scientific tools and techniques for technology assessment, legal and regulatory dimensions in use and uptake of health technologies, how to integrate medical technologies in healthcare institutions apart from understanding and assessing clinical epidemiology questions through systematic reviews and critical appraisal of clinical trials.

Experienced international and national faculty have agreed to participate and share their expertise during this week long international fellowship program. People from organizations like WHO Country Office for India, NHSRC, QCI are also coming for this fellowship program.
