The Army Clinical Pharmacology Fellowship Program was established jointly at the Walter
Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) in 1980. This is a two-year accredited fellowship
designed to meet the needs of the Army Medical Department (AMEDD) for Clinical Pharmacologist.
Clinical pharmacology is concerned with the better understanding and use of existing drugs, and developing more
effective and safer drugs for the future. Clinical pharmacology allows one to stand 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.
