Position Summary

As the area of pharmacy seeks to implement new programs and evidence-based practices in research, health care, education, and innovation, it is important to build a solid theoretical, methodological, and scientific foundation to inform efforts in these areas.

Graduates of the fellowship program will be well positioned for a productive career in academia or other research organizations.
