    I am thinking about taking a healthcare industrial engineering course next semester and I was wondering the kinds of concepts that are taught in healthcare courses. I am mainly wondering about how supply chain concepts are applied.

    I took ISyE 517 this semester which is Decision Making in Healthcare.  The class centered on cost-effective analysis but had portions that taught stats, simulation concepts (Markov Chain, Transition Diagrams, Monte Carlo Simulation), and a few others.  I don’t think many supply chain concepts were really involved in this course, but I also don’t think there needed to be. The Professor I had really liked to do thought exercises to show how difficult healthcare decisions are, then follow up showing a justifiable way to answer the exercise.  He is moving onto Harvard Medical School as a researcher so I can’t speak about what professor you’d get.

    ISYE 320 is a prerequisite to ISYE 417, which is the health systems class in UW-Madison. In ISYE 320, you learn about the theories behind supply chain and queuing theory.
