College Event Promotes Career Opportunities in Pharmacoeconomics and Health Outcomes Research
On October 25, 2011 the URI College of Pharmacy’s student chapter of the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) held an alumni networking event to provide students with the opportunity to interact with graduates of the College’s program in Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics, and to learn about career opportunities in this field. The event was attended, by graduate students and students enrolled in the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) and Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences programs.
The networking event included dinner followed by presentations by several alumni, who discussed the nature of their work and how the College’s program in Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics helped prepare them for professional success. A question and answer session with the students followed each of the brief presentations.
Graduate students Eun Sun Noh and Saumitra Rege coordinated the event, which included securing a grant from ISPOR to help support the program’s cost. For more information regarding the chapter’s mission and group membership, please visit here:
