PharmD students can choose to pursue further training beyond their degree through pharmacy residency or fellowship programs. Pharmacy residency programs generally have a clinical focus with advanced training in direct patient care and practice management. Fellowships have either a research focus, or for industry fellowships, a focus on different functional areas within a pharmaceutical company, such as clinical development, medical affairs, regulatory affairs, and HEOR. The links below provide more in depth research on these options.
To receive timely emails regarding information on residency and fellowship programs that are shared with the College during recruitment season, opt-in to our fellowship and/or residency listservs. We do NOT share emails on individual programs with entire classes in an effort to manage the number of emails sent.
