The Heidelberg Health Economics Summer School (HESS) is the chance for all involved in different segments of the health care system to convene, connect, and collaborate on top issues facing the health care sector, particularly the role of health economics in the decision making process. In an intimate setting that enables in-depth discussions from world-class speakers on the most relevant and daunting challenges that affect the health sector. 

The HESS 2020 is composed of two modules:
Basic Module, September 14-15, 2020
It introduces basic concepts of health economics and addresses practical issues faced by health care decision makers responsible for allocating scarce resources. The Basic Module was created with the objective of giving those without previous knowledge of health economics the tools to comprehend key issues.

Advanced Module, September 16-18, 2020
It includes an in-depth review of the strengths and limitations of the conventional approaches, where both participants and speakers with different backgrounds are able to discuss implications, potential solutions, and ways forward.

If you’re looking to connect and network with top leaders from the healthcare sector (i.e. academics, public sector and pharmaceutical companies); share and discuss your opinions with those that are currently committed to overcome the challenges with new ideas; and engage in numerous networking opportunities
– don’t miss HESS 2020.
