The Center for Health Economics of Treatment Interventions for Substance Use Disorder, HCV and HIV (CHERISH) is offering a unique introductory training in economic evaluation, Introduction to Economic Evaluation in Substance Use Disorder, HCV, and HIV Treatments. The training will be held over 2 full days on December 1-2 at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City and will give attendees an introduction to economic evaluation methods, including decision analysis, cost-effective analysis, QALYs, and computer simulation modeling. There is no cost to attend the course but space is limited. An optional 1-day TreeAge software training course is being offered on December 3 with a subsidized fee for those who attend our course.

The course is geared for investigators and trainees in substance use, HCV, or HIV who may not have any background in economic evaluation but are interested in adding these skills and using them in their research. Trainees, junior researchers, and senior faculty are welcome. More information can be found on the flyer HERE and on the CHERISH website HERE.

If you have any questions, please contact CHERISH Pilot Grant and Training Core Director Brandon Aden, MD, MPH, at
