Associate Dean, PharmD Degree Program

What I do

As associate dean of experiential education and professional development, I oversee the Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience (IPPE) and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) programs. I work with preceptors, students, faculty, and staff to develop and implement new experiential education opportunities that continue to meet the needs of the expanding role of pharmacists. In addition, I work with the program directors to provide preceptor development and to ensure that preceptors, practice sites, and students benefit from the relationships and opportunities provided.
