HTIC is conducting the 4th International Fellowship on Health Technology Assessment (HTA) from 28th July to 2nd August, 2014. We would like to invite participation from faculty and students of your organisation for this fellowship program.
2nd International Fellowship on Health Technology Assessment (HTA) from 31st March to 6th April,2013.
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.
