Thomas Jefferson University


Thomas Jefferson University and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia offer a joint NIH-sponsored fellowship training program in Clinical Pharmacology. This program focuses on the core principles of clinical pharmacology across the developmental continuum from pediatric to adult populations. The program is accredited by the American Board of Clinical Pharmacology (ABCP). Graduates of the program have assumed leadership positions in academic medicine, the Food and Drug Administration, and industrial drug development.

The Thomas Jefferson University and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia joint training program in adult and pediatric clinical pharmacology integrates formal didactic training in basic and clinical pharmacology and translational research methodologies with hands-on experience in laboratory research and human clinical trials. The overall goals of the program are to integrate training in methodologies, concepts, and approaches of basic and clinical pharmacology across the developmental continuum and in hypothesis-driven basic and clinical research. The program seeks to produce investigators who can establish competitive basic, translational, and/or clinical research programs and bridge the gap between the laboratory and the patient, as well as between children and adults. Programs are individually tailored to the trainee's professional interests and goals. The expected duration of training is two or three years.
