PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences, Pharmaceutical Outcomes Research Track
- Angela Czaja, MD
- One of the benefits of this program is having the opportunity to learn from experts in the field, with a nice balance of expertise in all three critical areas. The senior faculty have a wide network of collaborators to support a variety of clinical areas--the close proximity of all health sciences schools on the same campus also facilitates this. Most of the faculty are very accessible and willing to provide advice and education for on-going projects.
My interests are in pediatric off-label medication use currently with a focus on psychotropics. Under that broad category, I'm interested in drug safety and physician decision-making.
One of the reasons why I applied to this program was because I knew some of the faculty and knew that they could provide appropriate mentorship and expertise in the field.

- I am in my final year of study in the CePOR doctoral program. My dissertation research is about incorporating patients’ medication adherence into cost-effectiveness analysis. One of the main benefits of the program is the opportunity for individual interaction with faculty. A low student-to-faculty ratio allows more time for mentorship and collaboration. The experience of working with researchers in different schools across the medical campus has enriched the academic experience and added an important perspective to my research. I was interested to find that the students and faculty have such diverse educational backgrounds. This has added much interest to our class discussions and to professional and social networking outside of class.
