The ISPOR Student Network consists of 8 committees that liaise with the ISPOR staff, Student Network Advisor, Student Network Chair, Student Network Past Chair, and Faculty Advisor Council. Each committee has a key role in supporting ISPOR's mission to advance health economics and outcomes research excellence globally. If you are the chapter president of your university or a member of the Executive Committee, you are eligible to participate in one of the committees.

The Committee will also work with ISPOR staff to facilitate the reinstatement of recently inactive chapters through the identification of faculty within the university.

Education Committee

Upon confirming speakers and topics, the Committee will consult with ISPOR staff on confirming dates to avoid conflicts.
