Clinical Pharmacology Fellowship

The Army Clinical Pharmacology Fellowship Program was established jointly at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) in 1980. This is a two-year accredited fellowship designed to meet the needs of the Army Medical Department (AMEDD) for Clinical Pharmacologist.

Clinical pharmacology is concerned with the better understanding and use of existing drugs, and developing more effective and safer drugs for the future. Clinical pharmacology allows one to stand between the research lab and the bedside, in a unique position to translate laboratory research into new drug therapies. Clinical pharmacologists are a bridge between the science and practice of medicine.

Who Can Apply?
The Clinical Pharmacology training program is available to active-duty Army physicians who are board eligible/certified in a primary specialty and active duty Army PhDs/PharmDs (71A, 71B, or 67E) who have a doctoral degree in one of the life or medical sciences from an accredited academic institution in the United States, Canada, or non-U.S. degree equivalent. A research background, mathematical inclination, and pharmacology/medical experience is preferred. Civilians could be considered if they joined the Army and successfully compete.
