Fei Wang, PHMD

Associate Clinical Professor, Pharmacy (Affiliate)


Research Overview

I offer clinical pharmacy services and teach experiential students in a hospital-based primary care clinic affiliated with a major tertiary care institution serving a medically under-served and uninsured population while working at the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy. My clinical practice, teaching and scholarly interests include improving medication safety and care in an indigent outpatient population with a focus on quality and metric-driven outcomes, clinical integration, and reducing health disparities. I am a board certified pharmacotherapy specialist and a tobacco treatment specialist.

My scholarly work and publications over the past 10 years have focused on diabetes and/or practice-based research questions that address gaps in knowledge or care. My collaborative work as PI or Co-PI relates to analysis and synthesis of existing data to generate answers to a research question. In addition to the contributions described above, I collaborate with a diverse number of inter-professional team members to conduct primary-care research and education to promote a value-based and improved quality of care to a disadvantaged Medicaid and Medicare population in a safety-net health-care system.
