Academic / Research
We are offering post-doctoral training in pharmacoepidemiology funded by the NHLBI. Postdoctoral fellows will participate in on-going and fellow-initiated research at Johns Hopkins University addressing medication and device utilization, effectiveness, and safety relevant to heart, lung, and blood diseases. They will acquire special expertise in conducting pharmacoepidemiology research in their preferred discipline under the guidance of a mentor. For some postdoctoral fellows, enrollment in a degree program, at the Master’s level, to supplement clinical training may be appropriate and can be supported. Our program leverages the human capital and material resources at Johns Hopkins to provide comprehensive, longitudinal, and integrated training and professional development opportunities to future leaders in the field. Program faculty are situated within the Johns Hopkins Center for Drug Safety and Effectiveness (CDSE), which serves as a nexus for individuals at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine who are involved in research, education, clinical programs and public service to improve prescription drug use and pharmaceutical policy in the United States and around the world.
