If you're a pharmacy student looking to secure a pharmacy fellowship, this is for you! Take this quiz below to find out what your chances are of landing that industry role, and don't miss out on this opportunity to unlock your fellowship success.
As I entered my second year of pharmacy school, I was sure that I wanted to go into a residency program. I had it all planned out. I would complete a general PGY1 quickly followed by a PGY2 in oncology. This was aligned with what most people expected of me. I was certainly in the top group of performers in my class, and I was well known for doing research in breast cancer genomics on campus. I was confident that I could land a residency, and I was confident that I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my career.
Naturally, I felt completely lost by the end of the school year. I had stumbled across social media posts referring to industry fellowships for PharmDs, something I didn’t even know existed as a young student from the Midwest. On top of that, I met several PharmD graduates entering Ph.D. programs (again, something that many people expected me to do). Thus began an 18-month internal battle around what I wanted to do, why I wanted to do it, and how I could do it in the first place.
Everything worked out in the end, but it was a painful process. Unlock Your Fellowship Success is meant to compile everything I’ve learned from being an applicant and Chief Fellow in the largest pharmaceutical industry fellowship program in the country so that you can avoid the pain I suffered. I've put together a specific set of questions that I think will help determine your chances of success. At the end of the questionnaire, you'll receive a score to reflect on along with customized advice based on your responses. Additionally, you'll also receive a link to a full article on how to land a pharmacy fellowship that I wrote when I was a Chief Fellow!
