The Oregon State University/Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) College of Pharmacy offers a fellowship to provide advanced training in infectious disease epidemiology/outcomes research. The program is intended to prepare the fellow for a career in academia or other research enterprises. The fellowship is based in Portland, Oregon.
Our program is uniquely positioned to provide training as part of an interdisciplinary research team that includes doctorally-trained researchers, pharmacists, physicians, statistical analysts, graduate students, medical fellows, pharmacy residents and students. Fellows will develop expertise in observational research designs (e.g., cohort studies, case-control studies), data management and statistical analysis of large datasets, grant writing, and dissemination of research through publications and presentations. The fellow will engage in ongoing sponsored research and be mentored to develop, conduct, and disseminate results for additional clinical research projects.
Opportunities exist to pursue specific didactic coursework, including biostatistics, epidemiology, and scientific writing; fellows may pursue the Masters degree or certificate in Clinical Research. Clinical practice opportunities include the antimicrobial stewardship service at Oregon Health & Science University hospital. Teaching experiences within the College of Pharmacy, as well as a teaching certificate program, are also available.
The fellowship experience may be tailored somewhat to the trainee but typically consists of 20% clinical antimicrobial stewardship service; 15% teaching/precepting; 10% professional development; and 55% research and scholarship.
Minimum Qualifications: PharmD and PGY1 residency in pharmacy practice/internal medicine/ambulatory care or equivalent experience with strong clinical experience in infectious diseases. Prior research experience is not required.
Preferred Qualifications: PGY2 in infectious diseases or other clinical infectious diseases experience.
