The Clinical Pharmacy Translational Science (CPTS) Post-Doctoral Fellowship provides 2-3 years of mentored experiential training in clinical translational research to post-graduates (PhD, PharmD, MD, etc.) with prior research experience. The objective of the fellowship is to prepare these individuals for careers as independent investigators in academia, industry or government. Fellows spend at least 75% of their time conducting mentored research and participate in supplementary training including coursework in grant writing, departmental research and professional development seminars, and teaching within our PharmD curriculum. Fellows will gain direct experience designing and conducting clinical-translational research and preparing manuscripts and grants. These skills will be developed primarily through participation in ongoing research projects under the experienced mentorship of Clinical Pharmacy Faculty.
The objective of the Clinical Pharmacy Translational Science (CPTS) PhD Program is to provide intensive didactic and mentored research training to post-graduates (PharmD, BS, etc.) with an interest in pursuing careers as independent investigators in research. The program is designed to be completed in 4 years including 1.5 years of focused coursework. Each student will select from two tracks; Health Services Research (HSR) focuses on how health policy and our health systems and providers can impact and improve medication use, while Precision Pharmacotherapy focuses on the discovery and translation of physiological biomarkers that can be used to predict, monitor, or understand treatment outcomes. All students will receive general instruction in translational pharmaceutical sciences, research study design, and grant writing, and participate in a departmental research and professional development seminar series.
