Amber Frick, Pharm.D., Ph.D., is an assistant professor with the Division of Pharmacotherapy and Experimental Therapeutics.
Frick’s main responsibilities at the School are to develop an expertise in the implementation and assessment of new approaches to and best practices in teaching while also taking part in collaborative teaching activities. Additionally, she is establishing a scholarship program in education and collaborating with course coordinators to develop and enhance the teaching and assessment activities in the clinical pharmacology sequence of courses in the new curriculum. To help reach these aspirations, Frick completed a faculty fellowship with the Center for Innovative Pharmacy Education and Research (CIPhER) to enrich her teaching and educational research skills.
Prior to her appointment in DPET, Frick was a pharmacogenomics postdoctoral research associate at the School where she developed an educational study that examined how personal genotyping affected pharmacy students’ attitudes and self-perceived competence about clinical pharmacogenomics. Frick received her Bachelor of Science in biology and health science from Guilford College in 2005 and both her Doctor of Pharmacy in 2009 and Ph.D. in pharmaceutical sciences in 2014 from the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy.
