Michelle Hilaire, Pharm.D., CDE, BCPS, clinical associate professor of pharmacy practice, recently had an article published in the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education (AJPE) titled, "Essential Elements for a Pharmacy Practice Mentoring Program."
The article, which was a feature in the second issue of AJPE in 2013, concluded that mentoring programs designed to develop academicians are integral to helping new faculty members cope with the challenges of balancing personal, teaching, practice, research, and service responsibilities while developing skills. These programs can lead to increased productivity and job satisfaction for both junior and senior academicians. Although institutions may use different methods of evaluating the success of their program, the development of an effective mentoring program at any institution is a core component of enhancing its culture of teaching and scholarship, and ensuring the success of its academicians.
The article was the final work of the 2011-2012 AACP Pharmacy Practice Faculty Development Committee on which Hilaire served.
