About Keivan Ahmadi

I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Pharmacy, College of Science. I am a pharmacist with a master degree in Clinical Pharmacy and holds a PhD. My 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 me. I have served in academia for more than a decade. I have spent most of my academic adventures in Malaysia - food paradise of Southeast Asia. I have a keen interest in understanding/evaluating the ever changing landscape of ‘Pharmacy Education’ and in a broader term ‘Health Education’. I see 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.
