ISPOR Fellowship Standards

A fellowship is a directed, highly individualized, postgraduate program designed to prepare a participant to become an independent researcher in the discipline.

In a joint project with ACCP (the American College of Clinical Pharmacy), and following up on its initial Fellowship Survey in 2004, ISPOR has now developed standards for educational components of pharmacoeconomic and outcomes research fellowship Programs.  The report, published in Pharmacotherapy in 2008(and included below), reflects the growth and diversification of backgrounds now encompassed in the field, and serves to underline fellowship best practices from three perspectives: the educator, the employer [pharmaceutical as well as health outcomes consulting / consumers], and the student.
