Health Disparities and Community-Based Intervention Outcomes Fellowship
Touro College of Pharmacy - NY
Location: New York, New York
The Health Disparities and Community-Based Intervention Outcomes Fellowship will be a 12-month appointment to prepare a pharmacist who is interested in becoming a leading researcher and advocate for reducing health disparities via pharmacist-provided community-based interventions in the US. The fellow will gain valuable experience in research on health disparities and community-based pharmacist interventions that are directed towards improving patient outcomes and learn about pharmacist-provided services and their impact on patient outcomes. The fellow will also engage with the college's community-based preceptors to identify the nature of services provided, barriers, and facilitators to the provision of those services and help design interventions to reduce health disparities in those communities.

Since opening the doors to our Harlem campus in 2008, the Touro College of Pharmacy has offered a truly unique educational experience. We emphasize hands-on learning, extensive rotation practice experiences, and service to the community.
Our four-year Doctor of Pharmacy program equips students with all of the practical skills and knowledge they’ll need to succeed as pharmacists and clinical researchers. The curriculum combines time in the classroom and controlled practice environments, as well as in the field, completing rotations under the supervision of faculty mentors and professional health care providers.
We are dedicated to public health and community service. Our students help coordinate and participate in health outreach efforts in Harlem and other neighborhoods across New York City, with the goal of minimizing health disparities in underserved areas.
