Academia and Clinical Pharmacy Careers
Clinical pharmacists interested in teaching can working in universities and teaching in colleges of pharmacy.
The demand for clinical pharmacist scientists is becoming more widespread within the healthcare arena. Clinical scientists can oversee clinical development strategies, design studies, and analyze data for publication. Other areas include participation and leading preclinical studies on new technologies, and developing protocols for pharmacogenomics and biomarkers. Clinical research does not only involve a “lab-type” research setting. Clinical research also involves studies of human subjects, not limited to surveys, cross-sectional, case-series, case-control, cohort, and first-in-human studies, proof-of-principle projects, and all phases of clinical trials.
