Dean Christopher Surratt

This issue kicks off with the White Coat Ceremony, initiating the latest Pharm.D. class into the professional program. We introduce our four 2023 faculty hires, who bring expertise in neuropharmacology, health outcomes research, and medication therapy management. Our longstanding experiential education director has been promoted to the Associate Dean level, and has already played a key role in alumni relations in addition to his experiential work. The College is also growing new leaders via the AACP Leadership Fellows Program, Pharm.D. student organizations such as SNPhA, and novel mentorship programs. Our M.S. and Ph.D. students are making a name for themselves while advancing their research fields, and our faculty have reached unprecedented heights in extramural funding. The College continues to be recognized nationally for its commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and volunteerism. Thank you for your continued interest in and support of the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy at the University of Cincinnati.
