The CIPhER Teaching & Learning Certificate (TLC) program, sponsored by the Center for Innovative Pharmacy Education and Research (CIPhER) at the University of North Carolina’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy, is designed to prepare early career pharmacists and educators in identifying, adapting and applying effective evidence-based teaching strategies and skills in a variety of settings including didactic, experiential and patient or community health education.  Each participant must identify an experienced mentor at their practice site.
Target Audiences - The TLC program is designed for pharmacy residents, fellows, preceptors and early career faculty.
Learning Outcomes - TLC requirements are based upon those discussed in ASHP and ACCP White Papers (Wright EA, et al. Teaching and learning curriculum programs: recommendations for postgraduate pharmacy experiences in education. Am J Health-Syst Pharm 2014;71 and Havrda DE, et al. Guidelines for resident teaching experiences. Pharmacotherapy 2013;33) and other recommendations concerning preceptor development and scholarship of teaching and learning course work.
Program dates - The program begins on August 17, 2020 and ends on May 14, 2020.
