Bayer and the University of Washington are pleased to offer two, 2-year Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) Fellowship positions for 2020-2022. Fellows will spend their first year at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA) School of Pharmacy, and the second year at Bayer (Whippany, NJ).
The objective of the first year is to educate fellows on the principles and methods used in health economics and outcomes research. In this first year, the fellow will take core courses to satisfy the Master’s Degree requirements and engage in thesis research. Courses include biostatistics, health economics, and epidemiology. The fellow will be awarded a Master’s Degree from the University upon completion of all course requirements and a thesis project.
During the second year, the fellow will obtain hands-on training and exposure to the process of generating and utilizing strategically focused health economics and outcomes research to support the development and commercialization of pharmaceutical products. This will be accomplished by working closely with colleagues in the US Health Economics and Outcomes Research group.
The fellow will earn a Master’s degree during the first year of the fellowship at the University of Washington (Seattle, Washington) School of Pharmacy, one of the nation's leading schools of pharmacy. The fellow will take graduate courses within the school’s Comparative Health Outcomes, Policy, and Economics (CHOICE) Institute. The CHOICE Institute is part of a broader health sciences network that includes top-rated programs in Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Medicine, and Public Health.
Compensation includes a competitive stipend, basic medical insurance, conference attendance, full tuition coverage for the MS program, relocation from Seattle to Whippany, and holiday/vacation time. A Master’s (MS) Degree is awarded upon completion of all course requirements and thesis project.
