The objective of the Clinical Pharmacy Translational Science (CPTS) Post-Doctoral Fellowship is to provide focused, mentored experiential research training to post-graduates (PhD, PharmD, MD, etc.) with an interest in academic or research careers. 


We offer a formalized 2-year curriculum that consists of 75% time conducting mentored research, a departmental seminar series, 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.
