Ana Godoy Caballero joined the Community and Health Research Unit this January 2014 as a research fellow in health economics. Ana completed her undergraduate degree in Business Administration and Management at the University of Extremadura (Spain), in which she graduated first in her class. This was followed by an MSc in Economic Research at the same University in which she explored performance of primary health centres in a Spanish region, investigating whether the each of centres varied with different aspects of quality of the units.
In 2012 Ana completed her MSc in Health Economics at the University of York where she focused on analysing the quality of health care provision to identify reasons why some health centres varied in quality of care compared with others. Ana will be working on a number of projects with the CaHRU team exploring the economics of quality of primary and prehospital healthcare including the European (Framework 7 Programme) study investigating the Quality and Costs of Primary Care (QUALICOPC) in the UK.
