We develop experts in evidence-based medicine who provide clinical decision services for and play a vital role in the drug information and evidence-based medicine education of faculty, students, health-care providers and consumers.

About the Drug Information Fellowship

The Drug Information Fellowship is a customized post-doctoral program. This program prepares participants for careers encompassing drug information, specifically the practice of evidence-based decision making in a pharmacy practice setting.

Located within the UMKC School of Pharmacy, the Drug Information Center provides services to state governmental agencies, hospitals and other contractual clients. These services include evidence-based medical analyses, drug information, newsletters and other medical writing requests that will optimize pharmaceutical care. In addition, the Drug Information Call Center provides drug information throughout the calendar year, excluding major holidays, and is available to the public and health-care providers.

Through our contracts, fellows oversee and conduct clinical formulary management reviews monthly and quarterly. Fellows serve as adjunct faculty, which allows them to assist with coordination of the Evidence Based Medicine course as well as precept their own APPE students monthly.
