New! ISMP International Safe Medication Management Fellowship
Sponsored by: Baxter International
Application deadline: June 30, 2017
ISMP Fellowship programs give healthcare practitioners the skills and knowledge to become frontline advocates in the fight to prevent medication errors. The new 2-year ISMP International Safe Medication Management Fellowship will help train medication safety leaders capable of creating change on a global level.
International Fellows will have the opportunity to be involved in global medication safety initiatives with the World Health Organization and the International Medication Safety Network, address worldwide safety issues, and help increase global reporting of medication errors. They also will work directly with international professional organizations and medication safety centers, and attend multi-country medication safety meetings and events.
The International Fellowship will be a 2-year position based at ISMP’s office in Horsham, PA. Relocation to the Horsham, PA, area is required. The International Fellow must have an advanced degree in healthcare (e.g., PharmD or Masters-level degree in pharmacy, Masters- or Doctorate-level degree in nursing) and at least 1 year of experience in a clinical role in an acute care setting. Fellows must be fluent in written and spoken English and be seeking a long-term career at an international level with a focus on medication and patient safety. Applicants must be a US citizen or have official documentation (e.g., visa) that allows them to remain in the US for 2 years and travel internationally for a week or more at a time. The 2017-2018 fellowship will begin on September 1, 2017. The 2-year Fellowship offers a stipend and 15 days of paid time off per year.
