PhRMA invests in high impact research projects related to policy analysis and better use of medicines. Interns will work directly with PhRMA staff on a range of issues in health services research and policy including: federal healthcare programs, medication use and adherence, chronic disease, healthcare spending, insurance benefit design, comparative effectiveness research and value assessment.
THE HEALTH POLICY RESEARCH INTERN WILL:
- Develop and manage a research project or create a program/initiative to support PhRMA’s mission;
- Provide support on departmental research and resources in development;
- Collect, organize, analyze, and synthesize peer-reviewed and gray literature related to health policy issues;
- Develop and/or edit research deliverables from ongoing work, policy position papers, presentations, and press releases;
- Engage with members of the academic community and other external stakeholders;
- Collaborate with PhRMA staff in areas of public affairs, law, state, federal, scientific and regulatory policy;
- Attend scientific and policy meetings, conferences, and/ or webinars.
EXPECTED OUTPUT FROM THE INTERNSHIP:
Our expectation is that the Health Policy Research Intern will have the opportunity to create tangible output as a result of this internship as well as support day to day activities of PhRMA staff. To achieve this, we will work with the intern and their academic mentor (if relevant) to outline a work plan and timeline for proposed activities under the internship. Tangible deliverables to target could include, but aren’t restricted to, academic manuscripts, posters, presentations, white papers, and/or blog posts. At the conclusion of the internship, the Intern will present the findings/results of his or her work to the Policy & Research department in an interactive seminar format.
