This two-year fellowship is designed for individuals interested in academia in advanced pharmacy practice and who desire to acquire extensive experience in ambulatory care practice and clinical research. The well-rounded training and experience gained through this program equips graduates to be successful in academic or ambulatory care practice. Fellows will obtain formal training to be an independent researcher by joining multiple research projects.
Clinical rotations will be offered in internal medicine, ambulatory care and public health. Through their longitudinal experience in ambulatory care, the fellows will acquire sufficient experience to become certified as an Advanced Practice Pharmacist.
Most importantly, fellows will obtain a wide spectrum of teaching experiences as a clinical assistant professor. Through this role, fellows will experience traditional didactic large classroom teaching, case-study leading and experiential precepting. The variety of teaching experiences acquired by the fellows will allow them to practice as faculty in didactic and experiential settings.
Fellows will also become certified in medical writing and research skills by completing the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists training programs.
Areas of experience
The rotation options include, but are not limited to:
- Medicare Part D/geriatric outreach
- Acute inpatient medicine
- Ambulatory care practice
- Education methodology and assessment
“Pacific gave me opportunities to explore different things. It gave me opportunities to just jump in on things that I didn’t think I would ever do. I don’t know that I could have found this type of journey anywhere else.”
— May C. Lui ’16, ’19, PharmD, MS, BCPS
