The goal of the Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC Health Economics & Outcomes Research (HEOR) Fellowship is to prepare future leaders in the field of HEOR. Fellows can tailor their experience to prepare for careers in settings such as the pharmaceutical or medical device industries, healthcare systems, managed care organizations, government, and academia.
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.
During the second year, the Fellow will be located at Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC in Titusville, NJ and work directly with Janssen's Health Economics & Outcomes Research group. The Fellow's assigned projects and responsibilities will be tailored to the individual educational goals. The second year Fellow is expected to take an active role in research strategy development, methodological decisions, project management, presentations at scientific congresses, and peer-reviewed publication of results.
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 Janssen 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.
