If you are interested in learning more about pharmacoeconomics, this rotation is for you. Unlike many of the other international rotations, this rotation does not include patient care. Rather, you will focus on four major areas of health technology assessment and outcomes research: 1) Health economics, 2) Pharmacoepidemiology and drug safety (database management and retrospective analysis), 3) evidence-based medicines including meta-analysis and systematic review, and 4) health system and policy research. Through this experience, you will learn the important role pharmacists have in guiding allocations in a health care system to best serve the community and patients in a fiscally responsible manner.
