The WesternU Outcomes Fellowship was established in 2003 and has since graduated seven 2-year fellows who are subsequently employed in Outcomes based positions. The goal of the fellowship program is to provide comprehensive postgraduate training to prepare a pharmacy fellow to design, initiate, conduct, manage, monitor and evaluate health services research with a focus on application to the pharmacy profession. The program includes advanced seminar courses and hands-on experience in relevant areas: research methods, biostatistics, pharmacoeconomics and health outcomes; planning, conducting and monitoring an outcomes-based project; combining patient care, pharmacy practice and research for optimal outcomes; practice management; training in setting up a pharmaceutical care site for different patient focused programs; and teaching and precepting PharmD students.
Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU) is a private, non-profit, graduate school for the health professions, with a main campus located in Pomona, California. WesternU offers degrees in osteopathic medicine, dental medicine, optometry, podiatric medicine, nursing, physician assistant studies, physical therapy, pharmacy, biomedical sciences, and veterinary medicine. WesternU is one of the largest graduate schools for the health professions in California, offering 21 academic programs in nine colleges. The WesternU College of Pharmacy opened in 1996. The PharmD program prepares pharmacy professionals in a humanistic, interdisciplinary tradition to become competent, qualified practitioners. Post-doctoral trainees have the opportunity to participate in didactic and experiential teaching, as well as assist in the development of clinical skills with pharmacy students in all phases of pharmacy school. WesternU has an innovative block structure in the curriculum, which allows students to focus on one topic at a time, and for faculty (and other lecturers) to focus their teaching time. WesternU is a leader in providing interprofessional education and teaching evidence-based clinical practice – trainees will have a chance to participate in both.
