Rockford Faculty Member, Dr. Bryan Zobeck, To Present at National Rural Health Conference
Dr. Bryan Zobeck, Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice on the Rockford Campus, has had his research accepted for presentation at the National Rural Health Association 40th Annual Conference in San Diego this May. His work is titled “Clinical and Financial Impact of a Rural Outpatient Clinical Pharmacist”.
Dr. Kevin Rynn, Vice Dean for the Rockford Campus, notes “We are excited for Bryan to present his research, pharmacy as a profession is underrepresented in rural health organizations. This gives the College an opportunity, at a national level, to showcase our Rural Pharmacy Program.”
Established in 1859, the UIC College of Pharmacy stands as the oldest academic unit of the University of Illinois, one of the largest and most comprehensive research universities in the nation. Our College enjoys a national reputation for excellence and has been ranked among the top colleges of pharmacy for scholarship, curriculum, and the quality of faculty and students.
In 2010, the College of Pharmacy added an additional campus in Rockford, IL where students can benefit from small class sizes and personalized attention. Students in Rockford complete the identical curriculum as students on the Chicago campus. The core classes are taught via distance education using state-of-the-art technology.
The concentration in rural pharmacy services, also known as the Rural Pharmacy Education Program (RPHARM for short), is an option within the Doctor of Pharmacy degree program housed on the Rockford campus. The goal of the RPHARM Program is to educate students about the unique challenges and opportunities present in rural communities and to prepare them to practice pharmacy in a patient-center and interprofessional manner.
