We are recruiting onsite for an Outcomes Research Fellow in the University of Connecticut/Hartford Hospital Health Outcomes, Policy, and Evidence Synthesis (HOPES) Research Group [http://pharmacypractice.uconn.edu/hopes/introduction/]. HOPES houses 1 of only 13 federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's designated Evidence-Based Practice Centers. The fellowship is an ACCP approved program in which 80% of the fellows time is devoted to developing contemporary research skills in systematic review, observational research, and clinical trials with the rest of the time to developing teaching and leadership abilities. With multiple faculty members (Pharm.D., MD, PhD) working together to provide research experiences and training opportunities, it is a unique program that has been graduating fellows who succeed in academia and the pharmaceutical industry since 1998. Four of our fellowship preceptors were selected as ACCP Young Investigators of the Year, 6 publications were selected for the ASHP Drug Therapy Research Award (aka research publication of the year), 1 was selected for the Lyman Award, and 1 faculty member received the ASHP Award for Sustained Contributions to the Literature. With fellows working on 4 or more projects over their two years and past fellows being involved in publications in Lancet, JAMA, Annals of Internal Med, Circulation and other premier journals; we are confident that with your hard work and dedication, you can demonstrate your ability to start a successful research career over your two years here. For those interested in the HOPES fellowship, please e-mail William Baker at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also recruiting for an Outcomes Research Fellow in our University of Connecticut PeRformance Improvement for Safe Medication Management (PRISM) Research Group (http://pharmacypractice.uconn.edu/prism/). The PRISM researchers are investigating how pharmacists can leverage their accessibility and respectability in the community to enhance patient care. Clinical trials and observational studies center around community pharmacy disease prevention programs, MTM, adherence, workflow adjustment, counter detailing, and counseling. Fellows will be trained in social science research techniques and gain experience and proficiency in teaching as well. Interviews will be conducted online and not during the meeting. Please identify whether you are interested in the HOPES or PRISM fellowship program so we can triage your application appropriately.
Candidates must possess a Pharm.D. degree. Candidates with a PGY1 residency, dual degree, and/or experience conducting outcomes related research are preferred.
