This 12-month residency is offered in conjunction with Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy (EMSOP) and the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation (BMSF). The primary goal of the program is to improve health outcomes and decrease health disparities for populations disproportionately affected by serious diseases. The PharmD Resident will spend approximately six months in sub-Saharan Africa working with colleagues in the BMS Global Cancer Disparities-Africa program to help build capacity and provide training to BMSF grantee partners. The Resident will then complete the remainder of the program in Lawrence Township, New Jersey to develop program management and operations through the Health Disparities in Cardiovascular and Immunologic Diseases and other BMSF initiatives that address health inequities in the United States. As adjunct faculty at the EMSOP, there will be many opportunities for the Resident to enhance his/her experience by collaborating with faculty through scholarship, publication, teaching, and maintenance of clinical skills. The Resident will also be invited to participate in activities offered through the Rutgers Pharmaceutical Industry Fellowship (RPIF) Program (http://pharmafellows.rutgers.edu) including participation in the bimonthly Professional Development Series and will have access to a large network of Fellowship alumni
