Academic Programs

Graduate Programs in Pharmaceutical Sciences

Specialization in Health Outcomes

This specialization encompasses pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacoeconomics, research fields that address the effects of medication use in populations. Pharmacoepidemiology emphasizes effects on health and well-being of a population, and pharmacoeconomics emphasizes effects on health care costs in a population. Both fields require programming skills, knowledge of statistics, an understanding of pharmaceutical practices, and knowledge about specific diseases or health care issues. Both fields require an ability to apply skills to the solution of real life problems by developing research questions, conducting research and sharing research findings with the scientific community.

Training in the specialization of health outcomes prepares students for careers in industry, including pharmaceutical companies and pharmacy benefits management, federal, state and local government public health agencies, academic careers in pharmacy, medicine, and public health, and other related sectors.
