Welcome to our new class of CHOICE MS Fellows

We are pleased to announce the 2020-22 cohort of CHOICE MS Fellows.

The CHOICE Institute has partnerships with four pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies that sponsor two-year fellowship programs for recent PharmD graduates. The trainee spends a year with us at UW earning an MS degree, and then one year gaining on the ground experience with their sponsor company.

Postdoctoral fellowship students work closely with faculty in the CHOICE Institute on projects where they learn first-hand how to apply the principles of outcomes research to real-life problems. These fellowships provide students with a year of study at the University of Washington, combined with a period of applied research at the sponsoring company. The year of study leads to an MS degree in Pharmaceutical Outcomes Research and Policy.
