Student testimonial

Dr Cate Bailey (graduated 2021)

Thesis: Cost-Effectiveness Studies for the Improvement of Intergenerational Health and Wellbeing

I had a PhD in a different discipline, and had spent a number of years as a Research Fellow working in health research implementation in women’s health. It was through that work I gained a strong interest in the economics of healthcare, and found I was ready to take the plunge on a second PhD.

My supervisory team was perfect for my interests; Zanfina brought strong knowledge of health economics and outcomes, while my other supervisors were experienced in implementation and women’s health.

It was a really nurturing, positive environment and I had some wonderful opportunities, such as joining the executive team of the ISPOR Victoria and Tasmania Student Chapter.

Zanfina was very generous with her time, especially as we approached health economic concepts unfamiliar to me.

I am already applying my new knowledge as a Health Economist in a major Melbourne-based health economics centre.

I loved my time working with Zanfina, and highly recommend her as a supervisor to anyone considering a PhD in this field.
