The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer is accepting applications for a paid, 12-month Health Economics Fellowship.
Candidates should have a Master’s degree underway or recently completed in economics/health economics, epidemiology, health services research, or a related discipline.
Reporting to the Program Manager, Health Economics, the Fellow will conduct economic analyses and modelling to inform effective, efficient and sustainable cancer control in Canada. This work will include evaluating the burden of cancer, assessing the economic and social return on investment of the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control, providing health economic expertise to support Partnership initiatives, and modelling to assess the value of cancer control policy and practice changes and innovations.
Working with the Health Economics team at the Partnership, the Fellow will have opportunities to engage with cross-functional teams throughout the continuum of care (prevention, screening, quality care, survivourship, and palliative and end-of-life care), and will also support the refresh of the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control. The successful candidate will be exposed to experiential learning opportunities in the not-for-profit health sector throughout the policy-making process.
The deadline to apply is June 29. For more details and application information, click here.
