The purpose of this fellowship is to provide an intensive training experience in clinical pharmacogenomic research and implementation, in a large health care setting. The program will provide the fellow with two to three years of postdoctoral research education including didactic instruction, mentored research experience (75% effort), and clinical pharmacogenomic implementation experience. Fellows will participate in the clinical analysis and interpretation of pharmacogenomic data; clinical pharmacogenomic program implementation, outcome evaluation, and management; and design and integration of clinical decision support tools in the electronic health record. Fellows will also take graduate-level coursework at the University of Colorado, with the goal of obtaining a Master’s degree in Clinical Science (MSCS) or Public Health (MPH).
