The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, or AACP, honored Michelle Farland, Pharm.D., a clinical associate professor of pharmacotherapy and translational research, with an Emerging Teaching Scholar Award on July 17. AACP’s Council of Faculties presented the award during the AACP Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee.
The honor recognizes academic pharmacy faculty who excel at engaging in scholarly teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning. Awardees must have had at least three scholarly works related to teaching and learning accepted in peer-reviewed forums among other qualifications. Farland’s portfolio highlighted two published works that together have been cited by more than 80 publications across a wide variety of health science education settings.
Farland joined the UF College of Pharmacy in 2015. She serves as director of the personal and professional development curriculum in the college and has focused her research around outcomes of team-based learning.
