The PhD room
PhD students Thao Thai and Jessica Arnup have been successful in receiving funding from the Monash Graduate Association to run a series of workshops that host individuals with backgrounds in health economics that have gone on to have diverse and successful careers. In these sessions, the PhD students get the opportunity to ask about different career pathways in health economics. So far they have had speakers from industry, academia and public service.
- 21 May 2019 – John Cochrane from Ernst & Young: Work experience in Industry
- 3 July 2019 – Dr Jemimah Ride (Melbourne University): Academia in Europe and Australia as an Australian graduate
- 14 August 2019 – Dr Johannes Kunz (Monash): Academia in Europe and Australia as an European graduate
- 1 November 2019 – Dr Megha Swami (DHHS): Work experience in public sector
The seminars are continuing throughout 2020, with the first speaker of the year, Dr Leonora Risse, providing valuable advice on professional development via Zoom.
Congratulations to Adam Irving on his PhD completion. Adam’s thesis is titled, 'The economics of blood supply in Australia'. Adam’s PhD research was supervised by Anthony Harris.
