Health Economics/Outcomes Research, Pharmacoeconomics/Health Economics
The two-year Novartis Health Economics & Outcomes Research (HEOR) Fellowship program is administered in conjunction with Thomas Jefferson University. The Fellowship provides training and hands-on experience in a broad range of HEOR and comparative effectiveness research opportunities. The program is designed to facilitate and empower the Fellow in succeeding in an HEOR career.
During the first year, the Fellow will participate as a member of the research team at the Jefferson College of Population Health (JCPH). In addition to having an assigned faculty mentor, the Fellow will interact and collaborate with other JCPH faculty and staff. The Fellow will be immersed in population health and HEOR through project experience, didactic coursework, and presentations at professional meetings or other venues. Since the background of the incoming Fellow will vary, the Fellow may choose to pursue a graduate certificate or master’s degree through JCPH, funded completely through the program.
The Fellow will spend the second year of the program as a member of the Health Economics & Outcomes Research team at Novartis in New Jersey. The Fellow will focus on the assessment of therapeutic interventions and interact with other Novartis departments to learn how outcomes research generates evidence of the value of Novartis products.
The Fellow will be selected on a competitive basis from a national pool of candidates with scientific and/ or clinical training in healthcare (examples include nursing, medicine, public health, pharmacy) and a stated interest in HEOR. Preference is given to individuals who have prior graduate training and experience, but this is not a requirement. A steering committee with professionals from JCPH and Novartis will select the Fellow.
Additional Salary Information: The Fellowship provides a competitive stipend, tuition remission for graduate certificate or master’s program course work, and medical and dental insurance. Vacation, sick days, and reimbursement for travel to Fellowship-related meetings are also provided.
