Brigham and Women’s Hospital Subspecialty Fellowships

The Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics works closely with colleagues from many Departments and Divisions at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Successful trainees apply pharmacoepidemiologic and pharmacoeconomic approaches to research questions in their clinical specialty area. Fellows interested in such joint arrangements should contact Division Chief Jerry Avorn directly .

Typical study questions that clinical fellows have pursued include the comparative effectiveness of anti platelet therapy, utilization patterns of anticonvulsant drugs, or the safety of antacid therapy in hospitalized patients using large insurance and utilization databases.
