The Neurology Clinical Research Fellowship is designed to cultivate energetic Post PharmD graduates in the field of neurology. This fellowship is expected to be two years, but can be tailored to meet the needs of the research program and the fellow. The areas of study include: epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, restless legs syndrome, headache and psychiatry (optional). The fellow will be expected to run clinical research projects that are ongoing and sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and become proficient in protocol design (clinical and translational) and outcomes research. Additionally, the fellow will be expected to assist and take the lead in data analysis and manuscript writing. The fellow will be trained in the standards of good clinical practices, laboratory methods and institutional review board (IRB) certification. If desired, the fellow will have the opportunity to design their own research protocol, run the study and present the data at a national meeting. The fellow will assist with precepting pharmacy student candidates, and residents, and have the opportunity to disseminate knowledge in the didactic setting and skills based classrooms. Included in this fellowship opportunity will be clinical patient care on the inpatient neurology floors at The University of Colorado Hospital, the Anschutz Outpatient Clinic (epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and movement disorders), and the Veteran’s Administration Hospital. The goal of this fellowship is to train the fellow to become an independent practitioner in the clinic, academically and in research.
