Pharmacy Tabs 2017-2018 Preceptors of the Year
Kenna Payne, Pharm.D., Faculty Preceptor of the Year for the Amarillo campus.
The School of Pharmacy’s Office of Experiential Programs places TTUHSC pharmacy students in actual practice settings in or near each of the School of Pharmacy’s campus communities in Amarillo, Abilene, Lubbock and Dallas/Fort Worth. The technology-driven program provides these future practitioners with opportunities to interact with real patients and other health care professionals and has earned high marks from both students and preceptors.
Each year, Office of Experiential Programs asks the school’s third- and fourth-year students to honor one faculty member and one adjunct faculty member from each campus community with a Preceptor of the Year Award. The awards are presented at graduation and throughout the summer, depending upon the honoree’s availability.
For the 2017-2018 academic year, Kenna Payne, Pharm.D., was selected as the Faculty Preceptor of the Year winner for the Amarillo campus and Joshua Moore, Pharm.D., from Moore Than Medicine Pharmacy in Tulia was selected the Amarillo Adjunct Faculty Preceptor of the Year.
Adjunct Faculty Preceptors of the Year from the other pharmacy campuses include Matt Pennington, Pharm.D., from James McCoy’s Drug Store (Abilene); Lauren Kirk, Pharm.D., from JPS Health System Pharmacy-Outpatient Clinic (Dallas); and Joseph Ottis, Pharm.D., from Walgreens #4819 (Lubbock).
