CIPhER Friday Seminar
April 20, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:50 pm
“Integrating Basic and Clinical Sciences”
1 to 2:50 p.m. on Friday, April 20, in 4004 Marsico and 103 Karpen
Amber Frick, Clinical Assistant Professor and Faculty Fellow, CIPhER
Historically operating in silos, basic and clinical sciences are being integrated in pharmacy and other health professional programs, an action considered essential to educational reform. Here, we present strategies for integration of the basic and clinical sciences at multiple levels within a curriculum, ranging from horizontal integration of coursework to the incorporation of clinical concepts into basic science material and vice versa. Utilizing an interactive panel session, you will learn how to achieve integration of basic and clinical science domains while overcoming challenges. Panel participants will share their insights, examples of successful implementation, and future directions.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Tuesday, April 17, at 5 p.m.
- Lunch will be provided from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. in 4004 Marsico. When you register, please indicate if you will attend the lunch session and include any dietary restrictions.

Amber Frick, Pharm.D., Ph.D., joined the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy as a clinical assistant professor in the Division of Pharmacotherapy and Experimental Therapeutics. Frick’s main responsibilities at the School is developing expertise in the implementation and assessment of new approaches to and best practices in teaching while also taking part in collaborative teaching activities. Additionally, she will establish a scholarship program in education and collaborate with course coordinators to develop and enhance the teaching and assessment activities in the clinical pharmacology sequence of courses in the new curriculum. Prior to her appointment in DPET, Frick was a pharmacogenomics postdoctoral research associate at the School where she developed an educational study that examined how personal genotyping affected pharmacy students’ attitudes and self-perceived competence about clinical pharmacogenetics. She also lectured on integrating pharmacogenomics into pharmacy practice and developed clinically relevant pharmacogenomics cases on heartburn, depression and pain disorders. Frick received her Bachelor of Science in biology and health science from Guilford College in 2005 and both her Doctor of Pharmacy in 2009 and Ph.D. in pharmaceutical sciences in 2014 from the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy.
