CIPhER Center for Innovative Pharmacy Education & Research

About Us

Vision:  CIPhER will transform strategically targeted, high-value areas of pharmacy education practice and research through the application of innovative best practices, powerful research methods, and advanced technologies from higher education, health professions education, cognitive science, implementation science and other related fields. While CIPhER’s primary and foremost colleagues and clients are the UNC Eshelman School’s extended academic community, its aspiration is
to influence and transform pharmacy education practice and scholarship nationally and globally.
Programs and Services:  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 & Learning Certificate ProgramCIPhER 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 external speakers, trainers and consultants; and curating and sharing the best current research and practice resources on pharmacy and health sciences education.
