The CPR seeks to promote the advancement of research in pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacoeconomics, and pharmaceutical comparative effectiveness by providing post-doctoral research fellowships and other research training opportunities.


The CPR has a long history of partnering with pharmaceutical companies to provide postdoctoral training fellowships.  Fellowships typically involve one year at the CPR where fellows work closely with CPR faculty, taking classes at UIC; and one year of the fellowship is spent on-site with the sponsor working on applied projects. Fellows completing the program have gone onto positions in the pharmaceutical industry, academia, the insurance industry, and other organizations.  More information on current fellowship opportunities is available on the fellowship page.

Certificate Programs

The CPR offers a certificate in pharmacoeconomics. The program is designed for professionals working in the pharmaceutical industry or others that are seeking to gain an understanding of the field of pharmacoeconomics. The program is self-paced and includes readings and one-on-one interaction with CPR faculty members. For more information please contact the Center.

Graduate Program

Faculty within CPR are involved in teaching and mentoring in the graduate program of the Department of Pharmacy Systems, Outcomes and Policy (PSOP).  The department offers the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Pharmacy for those interested in graduate training in pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacoeconomics, pharmaceutical policy or pharmacy education.  More information on the PSOP graduate program can be found on the PSOP website.
