The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) is an independent research center identifying the best strategies to build a healthier world. The Post-Bachelor Fellowship (PBF) is a structured program where individuals can apply their knowledge and passion to help advance the field of health metrics and accelerate global health progress.
PBK combines academic research, education, and professional work with progressive on-the-job training and mentoring from an illustrious group of professors and researchers. Through research, training workshops, coursework, and active mentorship and advising, the PBF program aims to produce the next generation of scholars and leaders in global health measurement and evaluation.
The PBF program requires a minimum two-year commitment, commencing with training and orientation in early September. Fellows are eligible to apply for a fully-funded Health Metrics graduate program during the first year of the fellowship.
Fellows receive a salary and are eligible for an insurance benefits package that includes a choice of several medical and dental insurance plans, life insurance, and long-term disability insurance. There is no retirement package included with this appointment.
