The Academy at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy aims to create and nurture a community of faculty educators dedicated to enriching professional, graduate, and postgraduate learning and advancing education in pharmacy and the pharmaceutical sciences.

The Academy is framed around three core areas:

  • Developing faculty and clinical preceptors as educators and scholars in education;
  • Facilitating the design, implementation, and evaluation of new approaches to teaching; and
  • Engaging in the creation of best practices in education through the design, rigorous evaluation, and dissemination of educational innovations.

The Academy stands as a prominent symbol of the importance and centrality of education to the overall mission of the School and to the School’s commitment to the pursuit of excellence and innovation in education.
