IHME Post-Bachelor Fellowship

The IHME Post-Bachelor Fellowship (PBF) is a structured health research program where individuals can apply their knowledge and passion to help advance the field of health metrics and accelerate global health progress. This fellowship provides a unique opportunity for recent college graduates with strong quantitative skills to train with faculty and senior researchers on a variety of public health projects.

The PBF program combines academic research, education, and professional work with progressive on-the-job training and mentoring from a renowned group of professors and researchers. Through research, training workshops, coursework, and field experience in developing countries, the program aims to produce the next generation of scholars and leaders in global health measurement and evaluation.

Purpose of the fellowship:

  • Cultivate capacity of young professionals to perform high-level independent research that is rigorous, creative, and innovative.
  • Advance aptitude in developing and applying sophisticated analytical methods for health research.
  • Develop understanding of the current global health landscape and its challenges.
  • Provide a mentoring and ongoing learning environment.
  • Prepare fellows for future positions in a wide variety of careers in organizations that include academic institutions, national health agencies, international organizations, foundations, nonprofit organizations, and private businesses’

IHME fellows work to support the Institute’s core research to answer these three critical questions: What are the major health problems? How well is society addressing these problems? How do we best dedicate resources to get the maximum impact in improving population health in the future?

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 Master of Public Health in Health Metrics and Evaluation during the first year of the fellowship.
