Clinical Pharmacology is concerned with bettering the understanding and use of existing drugs, and development of more effective and safer drugs for the future. Clinical Pharmacology stands between the research lab and the bedside, in a unique position to translate laboratory research into new drug therapies. Clinical pharmacologists are a bridge between the science and practice of medicine.
The Clinical Pharmacology training program is available to active duty Army physicians who are board eligible/certified in a primary specialty and active duty Army PhDs/PharmDs(71A, 71B, or 67E) who have a doctoral degree in one of the life or medical sciences from an accredited academic institution in the United States, Canada, or non-U.S. degree equivalent. A research background, mathematical inclination, and pharmacology/medical experience is preferred. Civilians could be considered if they joined the Army and successfully compete for a position in the program.

GENERAL INTERNAL MEDICINE
The General Medicine Fellowship is for General Internists who want to be leaders in Education, Administration, or Research. The fellowship provides the skills and experiences necessary to not just survive but also excel in these roles. Graduates understand not only what to do but why they are doing it.
The General Medicine Fellowship is a 2-year program designed to train General Internists to become Clinician/Educators, Clinician/Administrators, and Clinician/Researchers. The curriculum focuses on all three areas and can be tailored to the individual fellow's needs. Major activities include an MPH degree from USU, the Stanford Faculty Development Seminar, supervised teaching experiences of medical students and residents, mentored research projects, teaching of critical appraisal, and presentations at national meetings. Internists who already have an MPH may certainly apply, and then spend more time during the fellowship in their area(s) of interest.
Our graduates have subsequently become Program Directors, Department Chiefs at Uniformed Services University, Chiefs of Graduate Medical Education, Chiefs of the General Medicine Service, Chiefs of Medicine, Deputy Chiefs of Clinical Services, and Hospital Commanders. In addition, graduates have produced an average of 18 publications in peer-reviewed journals, to include manuscripts in such prestigious journals such as JAMA and the Annals of Internal Medicine.
