About Rutgers Univ.
In recent years there has been a significant focus on healthcare costs, policies, benefits, and comparative effectiveness in relation to improving patient outcomes. The new US healthcare reform bill resulted in an additional 32 million Americans joining the healthcare system in 2014. As a result, there is an increasing need for highly trained professionals who can provide expert analysis and research in health economics, including patient reported outcomes, economic modeling methodologies, and epidemiology. This need extends across the pharmaceutical industry, among healthcare providers, private payers, and within government agencies.
Research and training in these areas is very limited, with few comprehensive programs throughout the US. Rutgers University, with its premiere health economics research and close geographical proximity to the pharmaceutical and health care industry, is uniquely situated to provide relevant academic programs and research capabilities in health economics and outcomes research.
This new program responds to industry needs and increased demand for trained professionals to conduct research in health economics/outcomes, cost effectiveness, and health p...olicy. Its interdisciplinary curriculum draws on considerable expertise at Rutgers University in economics, data analysis, biostatistics, health policy, and clinical research, and emphasizes the role of pharmaceuticals in the provision of health care. Graduates will have an integrated and comprehensive grounding in health outcomes research, epidemiology, health policy and practice in healthcare
