Assisstant Professor Dr Verena Vogt

Verena Vogt is appointed junior professor for health care services research and quality management in the ambulatory care sector in the Faculty of Economics and Management at the Berlin University of Technology.  Her research activities focus on identifying practice-based care pathways and measuring low-value care in German routine data. In addition, she is exploring causes and effects of regional variation and social inequalites in health and health care and involved in evaluating innovative care projects for persons with multi-morbidity.

In addition to her research activities, Verena is involved in teaching at master levels in Public Health and a blended learning course in the field of Health Technology Assessment. She also played a significant role in the development of the master’s course in Public Health (MSc PH) at the Berlin School of Public Health (BSPH).

Verena studied Public Health at the University of Bielefeld and the University of Sheffield. In 2017, she was a visiting scholar at the Menzies Centre for Health Policy (MCHP), University of Sydney. Before her appointment as junior professor, Verena was a research fellow at the Berlin University of Technology’s Department of Health Care Management and the Berlin Centre of Health Economics Research (BerlinHECOR).
