This two-year fellowship program, established in 1995, and offered in conjunction with Thomas Jefferson University, provides training and exposure to the various aspects of outcomes research in the academic and industrial settings. The program is structured to assist the Fellow in identifying future career opportunities in outcomes research while learning and working in a challenging post-graduate environment.
In year one of the program, the Fellow is educated on outcomes research methodology through project experience and didactic studies at Thomas Jefferson University. The Fellow participates as a member of the research staff at the Jefferson School of Population Health, designing and conducting projects, and disseminating findings through manuscript preparation and presentation at professional meetings. In year two, the Fellow will work with the Outcomes Research Department at Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC in New Jersey to learn how outcomes research is used to assess the value of therapeutic interventions. The Fellow will gain experience using clinical, economic, and humanistic data to support the research, development, adoption, and utilization of pharmaceutical products. The Fellow also interacts with other departments at JSA to learn how outcomes research generates evidence of the value of J&J products.
