Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


An evaluation of the two-year experience since the institution of the postdoctoral pharmacy fellowship in family practice has revealed the program to be a valuable one not only for the fellows completing the program but to the departments cosponsoring this experimental training program. The two individuals who have completed the program have gone to clinical practice positions. In both academic and hospital settings, the fellow gains an understanding of the philosophical basis of family medicine while at the same time gaining specialized experience in an area of interest as well as research design and implementation. The department of family practice has benefited by the provision of additional clinical pharmacy services and education. It has also enabled the department to expand its involvement in research activities.
