Welcome from the Chair, M. Eileen Dolan, PhD
Thank you for your interest in the Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics Training Program at the University of Chicago. This program offers rigorous training that combines research, didactic and clinical exposure in personalized therapeutics that pertains to any discipline of medicine.
We welcome individuals with an MD, MD/PhD, and/or PharmD degree who have completed a residency training and who are eligible for board certification in their selected specialty. Those with a PhD are also considered for the program in a relevant discipline (i.e. pharmacology, pharmacogenomics, genomics) and if they show a strong interest in translational or clinical research.
After a 2-year training period, trainees should be qualified to begin an independent research career in clinical pharmacology. In addition, fellows are eligible for board certification in Clinical Pharmacology.
Committee faculty are from many disciplines throughout the University and will provide trainees an environment for the exchange of ideas and resources across specialty or departmental lines.
We pride ourselves on the unique experience our trainees receive which is evident by our success rate of future scientists in the field of clinical pharmacology and pharmacogenomics.
