Can you tell us about the projects you’ve worked on with the fellows?

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with fellows to conduct research and develop peer-reviewed posters on topics ranging from digital health to chronic disease state management. Fellows have helped facilitate journal clubs and present disease state topics to current pharmacy students. Fellows receive academic insight from faculty at MCPHS University and also impart their wisdom to students looking to enter the pharmaceutical industry. This layered learning and mentoring makes me optimistic about the bright future of pharmacy.

Do you have any advice for current or incoming fellows?

New fellows will be immersed into an enriching experience that encompasses all aspects of pharmacy – clinical, academic, and teaching. This program will challenge fellows to step outside their comfort zone, network with pioneering minds, and develop an appreciation of the scientific method at work. With the guidance of industry professionals, clinicians, and academics – fellows will be molded into future leaders of medicine.
