Fellowship Directors

Information about Current Fellows:

Katie (Catherine) Derington grew up in Parker, Colorado and completed her undergraduate and Doctor of Pharmacy training with the University of Colorado. She completed a PGY1 residency with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center prior to starting her fellowship in outcomes research with the University of Colorado and Kaiser Permanente Colorado in 2017. During her fellowship, she completed a Master of Science in Clinical Science degree, became board-certified in ambulatory care, and participated in experiential and didactic teaching in addition to her research responsibilities. Her research interests include cardiovascular pharmacotherapy, pharmacoepidemiology, and leveraging biomedical informatics to advance research. In January 2019, she received a one-year Post-Doctoral Fellowship Award from the American Heart Association to study the effectiveness and safety of lisinopril and losartan dosed twice daily versus once daily. While finishing her funded research through the end of 2019, she will pursue research-intensive positions with academic institutions, pharmaceutical companies, third-party payers, managed care organizations, or other environments that engage her passions for research and medical writing. When she isn't "phamacy-ing", she likes to play with her dogs, practice calligraphy, and watch/read/listen to true crime shows, books, and podcasts.


Jessica Stine grew up in Henderson, Nevada. After earning her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Denver, she went to the University of Montana pursuing a PhD in chemistry. While in graduate school, her passion for healthcare led her to their pharmacy program where she could acquire the skills needed for clinical research. Throughout pharmacy school, she developed an interest in antimicrobial stewardship and medication safety. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, snowboarding, curling, golfing and weaving (a few years ago, she acquired and began restoring an antique floor loom). She is very excited to be returning to the Denver area with her husband and their daughter, and is thrilled that her first adventure as a pharmacist is in the health outcomes research fellowship with the University of Colorado and Kaiser Permanente.
