Faculty, students and staff from the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences attended the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL, to share the school’s leading-edge research and educational innovation with the pharmacy academic community.
Jaime Maerten-Rivera, assistant director of assessment, participated in a panel discussion entitled "Co-Curriculum Assessment Modalities across Accredited Pharmacy Programs,” which discussed results from a nationwide survey conducted by an AACP Assessment Special Interest Group subcommittee on the implementation and assessment of co-curriculum by accredited pharmacy programs.
Maerten-Rivera was also part of the session “Data Overload? Three Approaches to Implementing Data-Driven Changes Using the AACP Curriculum Quality Survey,” a presentation on unique approaches to gathering data for programmatic assessment and accreditation. Fred Doloresco, director of assessment and clinical associate professor, pharmacy practice, also contributed.
James M. O’Donnell, dean, and William Prescott, clinical professor, pharmacy practice, participated in the session “Bridging the Gap from Fellow to Faculty: Building Effective Research Programs,” where they shared insight on fostering innovative and effective mentoring of research personnel to drive success.
The school was represented at an exhibit booth, where conference attendees stopped by to chat with faculty and learn more about our commitment to educate the health care leaders of the future.
A number of faculty and staff also presented posters at the various exhibit sessions.
The school also hosted a Monday evening networking reception for alumni and friends along the Chicago River.
