University of Wyoming Pharmacy Weekend Sept. 24-25
September 14, 2010 — Presentations and workshops during Pharmacy Weekend Sept. 24-25 will focus on education for University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy students.
"These continuing education programs will be of special interest to UW School of Pharmacy preceptors who are interested in improving the quality of pharmacy education," says John Vandel, dean of UW School of Pharmacy. "The programs will also be of interest to employers who hire or may hire UW pharmacy graduates, as well as all pharmacy alumni."
At 2:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 24, in Room 129 of the Classroom
Building, Wendy Duncan, dean of pharmacy and vice president of academic
affairs for the St. Louis College of Pharmacy, will discuss "Educating
Student Pharmacists to Build and Advance a Sustainable Profession."
Duncan, a specialist in student outcomes assessment and quality improvement, obtained a Ph.D. in pharmaceutics in 1988 from the University of Toronto and joined the Toronto faculty in 1989. While there, she led the development of a new admissions assessment process that has been published in the "American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education."
This annual seminar, which qualifies for Continuing Pharmacy Education credit through the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), launches two additional continuing education programs. Duncan will also lead a three hour workshop focusing on assessment and development of the pharmacy curriculum to sustain the profession.
Kem Krueger and Linda Martin, both associate professors with the UW School of Pharmacy, will lead a two hour workshop regarding the development of professionalism among student pharmacists.
All programs are presented by the UW School of Pharmacy and Campbell County Memorial Hospital.
