About Thomas Jefferson University
Thomas Jefferson University has offered industry-sponsored Fellowships in health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) since 1994. The Fellowships are administered through the Jefferson College of Population Health (JCPH), which is the nation's first college of population health.
The goal of the Fellowship program is to train pharmacists and other health professionals for careers in outcomes research that examine the quality, cost, and policies of the healthcare industry. One of the oldest and most established programs of its kind in the country, the JCPH Fellowship program has more than 50 alumni to date. Current industry sponsors include Bristol Myers Squibb, Ethicon, Janssen, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and Teva Pharmaceuticals.
Fellows are selected from a national pool of candidates with scientific and/or clinical training in health care (e.g., biomedical engineering, nursing, medicine, public health, epidemiology, health economics, pharmacy) and a stated interest in HEOR. Preference is given to individuals who have prior graduate training and experience in healthcare or HEOR, but this is not a requirement.
- All two-year fellowships begin in June.
- Fellows are... assigned a JCPH faculty mentor who advises them and supervises their progress throughout the course of the fellowship.
- Fellows usually spend the first year on the Jefferson campus in downtown Philadelphia, PA. Fellows combine formal coursework with actual research or project experiences tailored to their specific interests and goals.
- Financial support from the industry sponsor allows Fellows to complete a JCPH graduate certificate or master’s degree in Applied Health Economics & Outcomes Research, Health Policy, Population Health, Health Data Science or Healthcare Quality & Safety during the duration of the fellowship.
- Fellows work on JCPH outcomes research projects and acquire management experience. Fellows are encouraged to produce publications and make presentations based on these projects at professional meetings.
- Fellows typically spend the second year working at the site of the industry sponsor. This provides experience in outcomes research in a corporate setting and offers opportunities to see first-hand how policies affect various stakeholders within the industry.
