CIPhER’s programming and services support the professional development and success of pharmacy educators, scholars and researchers. CIPhER provides pharmacy educators with expert, evidence-based training and professional development needed to support the design, implementation, assessment, and continuous improvement of educational practice. In similar fashion, CIPhER provides those engaged in scholarship and research with the training, tools, and support needed to design, carry out, publish and disseminate their work.
CIPhER also collaborates with the School’s Continuing Education programs to meet the needs of our preceptors and other adjunct teaching faculty. In addition to its work with faculty, CIPhER is responsible for the training and professional development of all residents enrolled in the Eshelman School’s Teaching and Learning Certificate Program. CIPhER also provides ongoing support for PhD and PharmD candidate teaching assistants and postgraduate fellows who teach.
CIPhER’s team meets these varied needs by: offering face-to-face and online workshops and seminars; consulting with teaching teams and individual faculty; supporting ongoing communities of practice; hosting visiting scholars, trainers and consultants; and curating and sharing the best current research and practice resources on pharmacy and health sciences education.
