Donald C. Brodie AACP Academic Scholar-in-Residence 


The Donald C. Brodie AACP Academic Scholar-in-Residence program, established in 1988 and named in honor of Donald C. Brodie in 2003, is designed to provide a focused opportunity for a faculty member within a school of pharmacy to develop, research and analyze public policy on an issue directly related to pharmaceutical education or the pharmacy profession. The goals of the program include: 1) increasing the understanding of important pharmacy practice or educational issues by pharmacists, other health practitioners and the public, 2) facilitating understanding of major issues by professional pharmacy organizations, and 3) stimulating scholarly study and research that considers economic, educational, ethical, historical, legal, organizational, political, regulatory and social aspects of the pharmacy profession.


The scholar commits no longer than 12 months to the program, with up to six months in residence at AACP headquarters in Alexandria, Va. A final report, including comprehensive literature review, data developed during the program, issues reviewed and strategic analysis and proposals, is required.


Financial and other support may include a stipend and fully furnished housing in Alexandria, Va., for the duration of the program. Also provided will be travel and relocation expenses of up to $2,000, as approved by the AACP Executive Vice President. Financial support of the scholar by his/her institution through sabbatical or other leave policies is assumed.
