Academic Fellowship

The academic fellowship is a 12-month program designed to prepare pharmacy professionals interested in a career in academic pharmacy through postgraduate training in program development, teaching, scholarship, and practice.

What you’ll do

The academic fellow will work with administrators and faculty to gain teaching experience in a variety of classroom settings, precepting APPE students, and participating in scholarship. The program also includes opportunities to gain insights about curriculum design and program assessment. In the process, the fellow will obtain a teaching certificate and leadership certificate.

The fellow will be exposed to the following areas:

  • Teaching skills (didactic lectures, recitations, skills laboratory, precepting, CE)
  • Research and scholarship
  • Academic Affairs and Student Affairs
  • Program Assessment
  • Clinical rotations based on the fellow’s interest

The fellow will also attend major national and local conferences, such as the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Annual Meeting, New York State Council of Health-System Pharmacists (NYSCHP), and the Eastern States Residency Conference.

How to apply

Individuals who have completed a PGY1 pharmacy residency or a PGY-2 specialty residency or a fellowship and are interested in pursuing a career in academia are highly encouraged to apply. Applicants without a PGY-1 residency will be interviewed based on their academic performance/experience. Other requirements include licensure or eligibility for licensure to practice pharmacy in New York State. The 12-month fellowship program will begin July 1 and end June 30.

Interested candidates should submit a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, official pharmacy school transcripts, and three letters of recommendation to:
