In addition to teaching the next generation of pharmacists and providing exemplary patient care, faculty in the Department of Clinical Pharmacy (DOCP) are also highly engaged in research designed to enhance the safe and effective use of drugs and to assess patient outcomes associated with medication use. DOCP faculty conduct clinical research across a wide range of therapeutic areas including oncology, neurology, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, geriatric medicine, critical care, infectious diseases, and others. The department is also currently developing a new Center for Pharmaceutical Outcomes Research to enhance research in areas such as pharmacoeconomics and cost-effectiveness analysis, pharmacoepidemiology, health policy research, and pharmacy benefits design.
