The 2017 application cycle is now closed. Please check back for information about the next program offering or sign up for the ASHP Foundation Enews for the latest information.

Program Focus

  • The Pharmacy Resident Practice-Based Research grant supports practice-based research conducted by residents in ASHP-accredited pharmacy residency programs or by residents in pharmacy residency programs that have submitted an application for ASHP accreditation. 
  • The primary goal of the program is to support quality research to advance pharmacy practice. 
  • A secondary goal is to develop new investigators’ research skills while fostering the development of mentoring relationships with more experienced senior investigators.  
  • Applicants should utilize the recommendations from the PPMI Summit and the Ambulatory Care Conference & Summit in the PAI Resource Center to identify relevant topics for this grant program. Applicants' research should support the ASHP/ASHP Foundation Practice Advancement Initiative (PAI) and Ambulatory PAI. Visit the PAI website to identify relevant topics for this grant program.
  • Submission of studies that evaluate the pharmacy practice models in hospitals, health systems and other ambulatory settings–such as the utilization of technology, role delineation changes for the pharmacists and non-pharmacists, improving innovative patient care opportunities for pharmacists, or evaluating outcomes–is invited. 
  • Clinical studies, including pharmacokinetics research and medication effectiveness studies, are not supported through this program.
