PharmAlliance Global Health Fellowship
The PharmAlliance Global Health Fellowship is structured as a two-year training program based at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy in Chapel Hill, NC and co-funded by Monash University Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
PharmAlliance is a unique partnership across the schools of pharmacy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Monash University, and University College London. The fellow will work with and be mentored by a team of faculty members across the schools of pharmacy at UNC and Monash. The fellow will engage in and perform the following main activities:
• Identify, pursue, and conduct global health and global pharmacy education research (60%)
• Implement and coordinate a global health and citizenship mini-course across PharmAlliance institutions (30%)
• Engage with PharmAlliance activities and projects (10%)
The PharmAlliance Global Health Fellow will be expected to:
• Conduct, present, and publish independent and collaborative global health and education research with PharmAlliance partners
• Lead the development and execution of a global health and citizenship course to be taken by all PharmAlliance students
• Coordinate the implementation of select student driven projects at PharmAlliance developing country partner sites
• Travel to PharmAlliance sites and their affiliated partners in developing countries for the purpose of conducting research (1-2 times a year)
• Make substantial contributions to the field of global health and global pharmacy education
• Audit the UNC Translational & Clinical Sciences Institute two year Master of Science in Clinical Research program (dependent upon fellow qualifications)
The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy is recognized as one of the leading schools of pharmacy in the U.S. in training pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists and is therefore uniquely positioned to expand its education mission and research enterprise globally through strategic partnerships. The enriched educational and research experience of the School faculty and students through global engagement should benefit not only the School but also the University and the state of North Carolina. The global reputation of the School will attract the best talent in the world to the School. Of equal importance, there are unmet health-care needs in many parts of the world. The School, through global engagement, should assume a leadership role in humanitarian health-related efforts in underserved countries.
