Pharmacy, OT and PT Student Research Opportunities

Build the Skills You Need to Become an Agent of Change.

Students in the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions are strongly encouraged to participate in research during their studies. The Office of Research, in collaboration with the School’s departments and other centers, provide opportunities for students to participate in innovative research. By participating in research, you’ll drive change and improve the lives of others in the Jesuit tradition of service, learning and care for the whole person.

Motivated students have unique opportunities to participate in research projects with faculty mentors in diverse research areas:

  • Clinical and translational
  • Pharmaceutical sciences
  • Rehabilitation science
  • Educational/scholarship of teaching
  • Health services and patient safety


This program benefits students by allowing them to build the skills and habits of mind needed to engage in evidence-based practice and contribute to the scientific foundations of their chosen profession.

The Student Research Program provides stipend support for professional health students engaged in collaborative research initiatives with School of Pharmacy and Health Professions (SPAHP) faculty sponsors. The current Academic Year Program runs September through May.

To be eligible, a student must be a full-time student in the SPAHP, receive a nomination from a faculty member and be in good academic standing. For additional information, please contact Dawn E. Trojanowski, 402.280.2893 or
