All PharmD students at the University of Arizona College of Pharmacy must complete a research project as part of their graduation requirements.
The project involves:
- writing a proposal that includes a literature review and hypotheses
- collecting and analyzing data
- writing a report of the findings, and
- presenting a poster at the college poster session held the week of graduation.
The goals of the research program are:
- To increase understanding of research and improve graduates' ability to practice evidence-based pharmacy.
- To develop basic tools for conducting research to improve pharmacy practice.
- To provide an advantage to graduates when applying for residencies and other advanced practice experiences.
- To develop expertise in a specific area.
This section includes a report on the Class of 2014 projects, a list of project abstracts, a few sample posters and a brief instructional presentation to students preparing for their projects.
