Founded in 2018, the KGI School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences fellowship program provides exceptional biopharmaceutical industry training for Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) graduates with a broad exposure to the areas fundamental to drug discovery, development, and commercialization.

This program prepares fellows for a career in the pharmaceutical industry by focusing on developing a deep understanding of how companies operate. Each position affords significant experience in a corporate setting, enabling fellows to hone their business and clinical skills. The program also fosters professional development; provides intensive, hands-on training; and exposes fellows to a variety of industry and academia-based opportunities.

What is an Industry Fellowship?

A structured one- or two-year work experience designed to provide hands-on training in functions fundamental to bringing innovative medical products through development and into commercialization. An industry-based training program for individuals with a doctorate in pharmacy to further their experience in the biopharmaceutical industry through work experience and clinical research.

To develop strong, confident, and competent biopharmaceutical industry leaders through the following:

  • Professional development to promote learning agility, scholarship, enhance leadership, critical thinking, and team-building skills
