College of Pharmacy Faculty and Staff Employment
Working at Manchester University
The Chronicle of Higher of Education has put Manchester University on its “Honor Roll of 2012 Great Colleges to Work For” – the third straight year Manchester has been recognized. Employee feedback from faculty and staff at the North Manchester residential campus and the College of Pharmacy in Fort Wayne was the primary factor for the distinction.
College of Pharmacy Progress
Since its inception, the Manchester University College of Pharmacy, now in its first year classes, has achieved significant milestones:
- Successful achievement of ACPE Precandidate accreditation status in January 2012
- A move into a brand new 80,000-square-foot building in June 2012
- Enrollment of its inaugural Pharmacy class in August 2012.
Opportunities still exist for pharmacy faculty and staff to join this program, as it develops.
Manchester seeks additional faculty to continue the development of the professional curriculum. These professionals will support Manchester’s mission to improve the human condition by preparing graduates of ability and conviction to provide patient-centered care at individual, local and global levels; and by advancing pharmacy education, service, practice and scholarship.
Pharmacy Practice Positions
Manchester’s philosophy is that faculty members in the Pharmacy Practice Department need to actually “practice pharmacy” to be effective teachers. All of the clinical pharmacists in the Pharmacy Practice Department have a practice site. This assures that students are learning practical, real-world material. Currently, faculty members practice at sites in both acute care (palliative care, infectious disease, critical care, emergency medicine, behavioral health) and ambulatory care (family practice clinic, and drug information).
The College of Pharmacy seeks to fill positions that include pharmacy practice at these sites:
