Clinical and administrative pharmacy includes the general areas of pharmaceutical health services, outcomes, and policy, as well as clinical and experimental therapeutics. Pharmaceutical health services, outcomes, and policy is the study of the economic, social, behavioral, and political aspects of pharmaceutical services. It is an interdisciplinary program which may contain elective concentration of courses in business, psychology, statistics, political science, and other disciplines which impact on ethical drug issues. The program prepares the student to address the complex socio-political problems relating to ethical drug consumption, manufacturing, distribution, and payment mechanisms.
Clinical and experimental therapeutics is a multi-disciplinary program which involves the investigation of disease processes and the therapeutic regimens in their treatment. Current areas of interest include diseases of the cardiovascular system, learning and memory, immunology, and renal diseases. Additionally, the efficacy of therapeutic regimens in special populations (e.g. geriatric, women, minority) are also of interest. The graduate program is designed to develop competencies in clinical and experimental therapeutics which is translational between the basic, applied and clinical settings.
