Location: Buffalo, New York
The University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is offering a clinical fellowship training program focused in public health.
The University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SPPS) is pleased to offer a 2-year clinical pharmacy fellowship program. The program provides an opportunity for a highly motivated pharmacist, who is passionate about public health and pharmacy practice transformation, to train in a progressive academic and clinical environment. The individual will develop research and academic skills through service to underserved populations. Projects are aligned with major public health challenges that address health inequities. Current projects are supported by several funding agencies including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The individual(s) will be expected to conduct two or more mentored research projects with the following focus:
Develop, implement, and disseminate innovative care delivery models addressing social determinants of health (SDoH) in pharmacy practice.
Engage pharmacies and health clinics on practice transformation elements including clinical service implementation, staff development, and timely educational elements.
Develop outcomes analyses supporting SDoH programs in pharmacy practice.
The fellow will gain experience and develop skills in public health, outcomes research, and practice-based research working collaboratively with faculty. The fellow will have clinical opportunities within UB-affiliated practices and have options to receive additional training in epidemiology and biostatistics, which can be applied to an Advanced Certificate or Masters of Public Health. The fellow will participate in teaching activities focused on public health as part of our curriculum transformation. The individual will receive a clinical instructor appointment and participate in education of UB PharmD students.
The goal of the program is to develop a dynamic skill set to lead innovative future models of pharmacy practice, clinical research, and teaching in public health focused on underserved communities. Successful completion of the program will enable the individual opportunities in academia, managed care, or leadership roles for the provision of patient care in various pharmacy and public health settings.
