About health economics:

With healthcare rationing becoming an increasingly relevant issue across many systems, owing to various factors including aging populations and novel technological advances in health treatments, the field of health economics continues to grow in importance. The tools developed by health economists are widely used to evaluate the clinical and economic value of drugs and devices, to help inform technology adoption decisions. This process involves economists, statisticians, and clinical writers with a capacity for finding creative solutions to challenging problems. Solving such problems requires programming and modeling expertise, as well as an in-depth understanding of the theoretical frameworks employed to assess value in a healthcare setting.

About the Health Economic Analysis team:

The Health Economics Analysis Team (HEAT) currently consists of over 45 people across our locations, with a team of five in the US. Members of HEAT work closely with each other and with our statisticians and clinical writers, and we pride ourselves on our ability to find creative and technically robust solutions to challenging problems. The team’s focus is on demonstrating the economic value of a product. This is achieved either through the production and communication of bespoke health economic models or through the review, critique and adaptation of models that are developed in-house by pharmaceutical companies, within academia or by other consulting firms.

Your responsibilities:

As an intern, you will be working on economic modelling projects alongside our US based health economists, with instructions and support from members of the team. The projects are varied because every model is different. Examples of tasks you may work on include:

  • Researching a disease area and understanding its current treatment landscape
  • Analyzing the effectiveness and safety of a new technology using results published in journal articles or disease registries
  • Using research skills to identify appropriate inputs to inform model parameterization
  • Designing and developing transparent and user-friendly economic models – these models are typically built in Microsoft Excel® but other software such as R is sometimes used
  • Reporting and explaining what you have done – verbally, in a written document, or as a presentation


Key requirements:

  • A minimum of (expected) GPA 3.0, or equivalent, in a relevant major (such as mathematics, statistics, operational research, decision science, medical sciences, pharmacy, economics or computer sciences)
  • Self-motivation and an interest in learning more about economic modeling and the health economics industry
  • Excellent numerical, critical thinking and writing skills
  • Fluency in Microsoft Office® packages, including Excel


Compensation:

We are pleased to offer compensation between US$15-20 per hour depending on experience.

How to apply:

To apply for this role, please send a resume and a cover letter detailing your eligibility for the role, your (expected) GPA, and confirmation that you have US work authorization to jobs@bresmed.com(please include the job reference YMUS0320-1 in the subject line of your email).
