In 2018 Jan Hoffmann completed his studies of health economics at the university of cologne (Degree: Master of Science). In his studies, he focused on the methods of evidence-based medicine, systematic reviews, and topics concerning health care research.

From 2018 until 2019 he worked as a research associate at the Institute of General Practice and Family Medicine affiliated to the University Hospital Bonn. His main research activities involved job satisfaction and job profiles of practice assistants in German primary care practices. He continued his expertise in the methods of systematic reviews, while also working with quantitative survey data.
