PittPharmacy faculty members Karen S. Pater, PharmD, CDCES,BCACP, Colleen M. Culley, PharmD, BCPS, and Kristine S. Schonder, PharmD were awarded a University of Pittsburgh Forge Your Own Path – Personalized Education Grant from the Office of the Provost.

The project titled, Professional Development Advisor Training and Educational Resources Development, will create a repository of training resources for PittPharmacy professional development advisors. These materials will help these faculty advisors support the academic and career integration and professional development of pharmacy students. Resources will be designed for implementation according to a designated timeline across the six semesters in which students are enrolled in didactic courses and will include best practices for facilitating effective advising meetings, resources for conducting and evaluating professional development reviews, tools to assist advisors as they guide students considering curricular and co-curricular opportunities, and resources regarding post-graduate professional and training opportunities to enhance career path discussions.
