Posted on March 18, 2015 in Lectures, Partnerships, Pharmacy
The ASHP Research and Education Foundation has selected Campbell University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences (CPHS) as a host site for its prestigious Visiting Leaders Program. Harold N. Godwin, a professor and associate dean of pharmacy for medical center affairs at the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy, will visit Buies Creek to meet with CPHS faculty and residents.
The American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists (ASHP) is a national professional organization representing pharmacists practicing in hospitals and health systems. The ASHP Research and Education Foundation, also known as simply the ASHP Foundation, serves as a philanthropic branch of the greater organization. The Visiting Leaders Program provides an opportunity for pharmacy residents to interact with an established health-system leader to cultivate leadership skills and gain insight on making the most out of their pharmacy residency experiences. CPHS is one of twenty-five institutions in the nation selected for this year’s program.
“We are pleased that Campbell was selected to be part of this program,” said Ann Marie Nye, associate professor of pharmacy practice and primary proposal writer. “The residents and program directors will benefit from learning from such an accomplished leader in pharmacy.”
The College has eight residents matriculating through the program this academic year and typically sees twenty-five percent of each graduating doctor of pharmacy class apply and match to residency positions. The program will also host nine residents from six other local programs. Godwin will be on campus for his visit March 23-24.
