About Keivan Ahmadi

Keivan Ahmadi is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Pharmacy, College of Science. He is a pharmacist with a master degree in Clinical Pharmacy and holds a PhD. His doctoral work aimed at developing measurement tools to measure the changes in HIV/AIDS-related stigmatizing attitudes of healthcare students as they became more professionalized. Thus, health equality, marginalized population access to health and public health are of great interest to him. He has served in academia for almost a decade. He has spent most of his academic adventures in Malaysia - food paradise of Southeast Asia. Keivan has a keen interest in understanding/evaluating the ever changing landscape of ‘Pharmacy Education’ and in a broader term ‘Health Education’. Keivan sees the future of healthcare through the wide angled lenses of values-based education & interprofessional learning. I am currently looking for PhD students - self-financed - who are interested to work on: 1- Different aspects of electronic cigarettes such as vaping behavior, chemical profiling of electronic cigarettes, safety profile and design of electronic cigarettes, harm reduction aspects of electronic cigarettes, etc. 2- Clinical aspects as well as public health/social aspects of pharmacists role - and other healthcare professionals - in provision of care; addressing issues such as antimicrobial resistance, diabetes and polypharmacy. 3- Quantitative approaches toward measuring professional development and attitude change among healthcare professionals?
