Program Description

The Comparative Health Outcomes, Policy, and Economics (CHOICE) Institute faculty, post-doctoral fellows and students conduct analyses of the comparative effectiveness, safety and cost-effectiveness of healthcare interventions to estimate value propositions and improve decision making by patients, clinicians, and policy makers.

The CHOICE Institute at the UW School of Pharmacy teaches you how to influence health policy and how to advance your research all the while modeling excellence. Our program offers an exceptional educational experience alongside highly engaged peers, faculty, and alumni. Our program is selective, accepting up to four new doctoral students a year. This allows for extraordinary access to our world-class faculty as well as peers who will challenge and engage you.

At UW, the six health sciences disciplines are co-located, allowing for innovative cross-discipline collaborations. Based in the biotech center of Seattle, The CHOICE Institute partners with numerous affiliate institutes, such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Institute for Health Metrics Evaluation, and many more. Faculty and students in pharmacy, medicine, dentistry, nursing, social work, and public health are uniquely positioned to take advantage of breakthrough research and medical technology opportunities.
