Post-Doctoral Fellowships

The fellowships at Belmont University College of Pharmacy are two-year post-doctoral training programs focused in drug information, evidence-based practice, teaching, and research. Belmont works in conjunction with corporate healthcare partners to give fellows real-world experience in specific fields such as toxicology and information management. The fellowships provide opportunities to develop an understanding of academia, research, drug information delivery, and corporate pharmacy through rotations at Belmont University College of Pharmacy’s Christy Houston Foundation Drug Information Center and Aegis Sciences Corporation or HealthTrust. Upon completion of the program, candidates will be qualified to pursue careers in each respective area.
