After attending four 2.5-hr sessions of this ConnectHEOR bootcamp on health economic model development using Excel/ VBA, I got an extensive insight into the world of economic modeling. This is the perfect course for anyone who wants to learn the skill of economic modeling through decision tree, Markov modelling, and partitioned survival modelling approaches. The tutor, is a highly experienced modeller, and he kept the sessions engaging and interactive through his rich experience. Though not essential, a prior knowledge of VBA can make this course even more engaging.

I found that the balance of exercises, and lectures was ideal for developing each module’s modelling topics. Dealing with uncertainty in the model was presented in an easily digestible way. As with much software/coding 101 to 201, the bootcamp introduces participants to the Shiny framework needed to create data products of varying interactive complexity. Finally, the mentors were very accessible to help answer questions offline during the course and after it ended.
