Welcoming our 2021-2023 Cohort of MS HEOR Fellows

We are pleased to announce the 2021-23 cohort of CHOICE MS HEOR 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 Health Economics & Outcomes Research.
