The College of Pharmacy’s Chris Wisniewski, clinical pharmacy and outcome sciences associate professor, has been selected by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) for its 2021 Emerging Teaching Scholar Award.

The AACP Council of Faculties (COF) Emerging Teaching Scholar Award is designed to recognize excellence of academic pharmacy faculty engaged in and/or supporting scholarly teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

“This selection by your peers signifies their recognition of you as a gifted teacher, scholar and academic leader,” AACP senior director of education Michelle Assa-Eley commented in the notification. “Certainly, your contributions to pharmacy education are worthy of such recognition.”

Wisniewski earned his Pharm.D. from the University of Sciences in Philadelphia in 2004 and completed post-graduate training at St. Thomas Hospital and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

An innovative teacher, he recently experimented with transforming the entire first-year Drug Information course into a flipped classroom experience, using short videos with advance questions to enable students to build on basic foundational content during class. Earlier this month, he completed the Advanced Leadership Program (ALP) held by the MUSC Leadership Institute, a program designed to bring together and elevate emerging leaders of the MUSC enterprise.

The recipients of this national award will be recognized at the AACP Annual Meeting during the Council of Faculties Business Meeting on July 16.
