Health Economics and Financing serves as the perfect primer for the economic analysis of medical markets. It prepares students of medicine, public health, policy and administration who wish to engage the central economic issues of their field—without extensive mathematics or highly technical analytical techniques.

Getzen’s text includes effective explanations of how and why health and medicine are both like and unlike other economic goods, as well as knowledge about institutional features, for students who intend to go into this unique and rewarding line of work.

Health Economics and Financing serves as an excellent primer for introducing students to the principles and core concepts of health economics rather than its literature, equations, or research methods.
