The Department of Population Medicine (DPM) in the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute is a research and teaching partnership between Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (HPHC), a non-profit insurer in New England with over 1 million members, and Harvard Medical School. HPHC administrative and claims data (from 2018-2021) are available for HMS scholarly projects, under the mentorship of a DPM faculty member. DPM faculty use this data to: examine epidemiological trends in health care utilization, diagnoses, and costs; evaluate state and national health policies and insurer programs; and examine health plan decision making. There are opportunities for students to work on ongoing projects or develop a new research question within the scope of an ongoing project. Interested students should have experience with data analysis and be proficient in statistical programing packages, such as SAS, STATA or R. Please contact Laura Garabedian (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in learning more about the data, ongoing projects and available faculty mentors.
