Our graduate students are from all over the world, and their research is changing the world!

HOD is home to the next generation of health outcomes researchers. Our graduate students are from all over the world and bring diversity in culture, thought, and research to the division. Our graduate program is strengthened by a worldview of unique perspectives, and it produces graduates who can navigate in global environments.

HOD has 25-30 graduate students and fellows who work collaboratively with faculty, clinicians, and industry, as well as other graduate students, to conduct research in a broad range of health economics and outcomes projects, as well as projects directly focused on patient care. Students present these transformative projects at national and international meetings.  

Selected research posters from these conferences can be accessed below.
