TRAINING PROGRAMS IN REAL-WORLD EVIDENCE
The University of Pennsylvania provides training in real-world evidence / pharmacoepidemiology leading to the Master of Science in Clinical Epidemiology (MSCE) degree or PhD in epidemiology degree. Both programs provide full-time, in-person instruction that includes coursework plus mentored research. Persons interested in these programs should visit the program’s website.
Fellowship support for training in real-world evidence and pharmacoepidemiology leading to the Master of Science in Clinical Epidemiology (MSCE) degree or PhD in epidemiology degree is available on a competitive basis through a grant from the National Institute for General Medical Sciences for persons with a clinical doctoral degree (including MD, PharmD, DO, PhD, etc). Persons interested in being considered for this grant should apply to the MSCE program or PhD program and indicate this potential source of funding on their application. Eligible candidates should hold a clinical doctoral degree (including MD, PharmD, DO, PhD). Candidates for NIH fellowship support be either a U.S. Citizen, a non-citizen national of the United States, or a lawful permanent resident.
The Center for Real-World Effectiveness and Safety of Therapeutics (CREST) values diversity and seeks talented students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. Further, the CCEB does not discriminate on the basis of color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, or status as a disabled or Vietnam-era veteran in the administration of its educational policies, programs or activities, admissions policies and procedures, and scholarship programs. Women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply. Furthermore, we welcome students with disabilities and are committed to providing the same exceptional opportunities to all students. Policies and procedures have been developed to provide students with as much independence as possible and to promote self-advocacy. We encourage learners with disabilities to access all of the resources available to them, including self-identifying through the office of Student Disabilities Services.
