The University of Houston College of Pharmacy has two different fellowship training programs (Academic Fellowship - 1 year; Infectious Diseases Fellowship - 2 years). Please read more about the training programs below, and specify which program you are interested in when contacting us. Thank you.
Fellowship in Academic Pharmacy
The Fellowship in Academic Pharmacy at the University of Houston College of Pharmacy (UHCOP) is a 12-month postgraduate training opportunity for practicing pharmacists to obtain advanced practice, teaching and research experience with a member institution of the Texas Medical Center (TMC), the world’s largest medical center with more than 50 health-system, academic and non-profit healthcare related institutions. The purpose of the program is to prepare pharmacists for a career in pharmacy education through training in teaching, curriculum development, college service, mentoring, scholarship, and clinical practice. The fellow will be exposed to a variety of teaching responsibilities, such as lecturing, facilitating small group-based learning, course coordination, and student assessment. In addition to extensive academic experience, the fellow will also participate in direct patient care rotations based on their fields of interest. The training year will consist of approximately 60-70% teaching and academic related duties and 30-40% clinical practice rotations. Highlights of the training program include participating on multiple college-wide committees, extensive teaching experience, and flexible clinical practice opportunities. At the end of the training program, the academic fellow will be well prepared for a career in academia. The fellow will be based out of UHCOP’s new nine-story, 300,000-square-foot Health 2 Building, which opened in July 2017 and features Sterile Products Laboratory, OSCE Suites, active-learning classrooms, and other state-of-the-art instructional and research facilities.

Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program
The University of Houston College of Pharmacy Department of Pharmacy Practice and Translational Research is made up of 31 full-time faculty members. The vision of the department is to be a leader in pharmacy and postgraduate education through excellence in translational, clinical and outcomes research. We are currently screening for postdoctoral fellowship programs with an emphasis on infectious diseases. Opportunities to take graduate coursework, teach pharmacy students and residents (didactic and experiential), and travel to major international scientific meetings are incorporated into the fellowship program.
NIH –funded University of Houston College of Pharmacy Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Fellowship with focus on Microbiome/C. difficile studiesis a research intensive 2-year fellowship program as part of a large, multidisciplinary focus to better understand the systems biology of C. difficile and microbiome effects associated with antimicrobials. The fellow will learn in vitro microbiology techniques, molecular biology including PCR and DNA sequencing, and clinical research skills including execution of prospective cohort studies and clinical trials. Grant and manuscript preparation skills will be developed and the fellow will be expected to lead and develop at least one independent research project. PGY1/PGY2(ID) preferred but PGY1 with experience in infectious disease would also qualify.
