Postdoc pharmacologists in various endeavors beyond bench research with a particular focus on education as a viable career path. There are more than 15 new medical schools that have been inaugurated within the last couple of years. In addition, there are many osteopathic, pharmacy, nursing and allied health schools that are being established as well. These new developments create an immediate need for content experts in the area of all basic sciences, including pharmacology, to teach the medical students. Participants will be exposed to the means by which they can identify, explore, and target these opportunities.

Collaborative role of pharmacology in education of healthcare professions
San Diego Convention Center, Room 5A
9:30 AM – 12:00 PM
SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE
Sponsored by the Divisions for Pharmacology Education; Behavioral Pharmacology; Cardiovascular Pharmacology; Drug Discovery and Development; Drug Metabolism; Integrative Systems, Translational and Clinical Pharmacology; Molecular Pharmacology; Neuropharmacology; and Toxicology
Chairs: Sandra Carlin Andrieu, LSUHSC New Orleans Sch of Dentistry and Robert J. Theobald, Jr., Kirksville Coll. of Osteopathic Med.

It is well known that interprofessional collaborative practice is key to the safe, high quality, accessible, patient-centered care desired by all. Achieving that vision for the future requires moving beyond profession-specific educational efforts to engage students of different professions in interactive learning with each other so that they enter the workforce ready to practice effective teamwork and team-based care. This symposium will address some of the core principles of integrative curricula and will provide participants with specific guidance on the role of pharmacology in both foundational sciences and organ system courses, including the interface with other professions and disciplines in healthcare and health science.
