We are proud to share that one of the PharmD/MS-HOPE students, Rutvi Patel, was on the team. Rutvi received support and preparation from HOPE Program faculty, staff, fellows, and students including Sumie Kakehi (HOPE student), Soham Shukla (former HOPE fellow), and Ashley Guesnier (current HOPE fellow).

We know that the strong mentorship our students get from the HOPE network and coursework on the healthcare system, decision-making, and economic modeling is critical to their success. I wanted to share this accomplishment to express that we are doing everything possible to prepare our students. The collaboration between HOPE, EMSOP, and the School of Public Health continues to show the importance and need for highly trained professionals in health economics and outcomes research (HEOR). Stories like these are what keep HOPE motivated to continue this significant work.
