Fred Doloresco, PharmD, MS, Director of Assessment and Clinical Associate Professor, has been selected to participate in the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) 2021-2022 Academic Leadership Fellows Program.
Doloresco joins the 18th cohort of 30 individuals who represent some of academic pharmacy’s brightest future leaders from around the country.
The Academic Leadership Fellows Program supports and contributes to the development of leaders in academic pharmacy and higher education. The program provides an opportunity for Fellows to expand relationships with peers and colleagues at other institutions, as well as within their own college and university.
Doloresco was recently recognized as the 2019 Faculty Preceptor of the Year by the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. He currently serves as chair of both the Curriculum Committee and Student and Academic Affairs Committee at the school. Doloresco was also the founding advisor for the American College of Clinical Pharmacy - Student College of Clinical Pharmacy University at Buffalo Chapter.
During the year-long program Fellows explore historical perspectives of leadership, learn about conflict and the road to resolution, practice self-reflection, and examine current issues in higher education utilizing a formal debate setting. Sessions held in-person will address critical and timely topics such as relationship management, diversity, equity and inclusion in higher education, and well-being. More than 400 Fellows have graduated from the program to date.
“When AACP embarked upon the development of this program in 2004, we dreamed that it could have a transformational impact on participants and our Academy. Little did we know how much impact the program could actually have,” said Lucinda L. Maine, RPh, PhD. “It would be impossible to accurately assess the number of lives that have already been touched by the leaders who have completed this program. And the impact will go on indefinitely!”
