Job Details

The Department of Pharmacy Practice, in the College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions at South Dakota State University (SDSU), is inviting applications for the position of the Gary and Sharon Van Riper Scholar of Pharmacy Practice and Innovation, a 12-month, full-time, benefits-eligible, non-tenure track Faculty (Assistant/Associate/Full) position in the Department of Pharmacy Practice.

This named position of Pharmacy Practice Innovation is an exciting new collaboration with a well-established health partner; the work location will be based at Avera McKennan in Sioux Falls, SD. Unique from a traditional clinical faculty position, this new position will focus on system-level quality initiatives that directly impact patient care related to care transitions. The position will be actively engaged with pharmacy and health-systems leadership at Avera McKennan and is supervised by the Department Head of Pharmacy Practice. Primary responsibilities include maintaining viable transitions of care clinical pharmacy practice with specific focus in the area of inpatient (internal medicine or other) pharmacy application, didactic instruction, precepting on-site students, actively engaging in scholarship, and contributing to various committees within both the academic and healthcare settings.

Advances in practice are driven by those able to read the current landscape and use what is learned to create bold solutions to meet the needs of patients and other healthcare practitioners. This position holder will not only meet the current needs of healthcare but will anticipate the ever-changing environment and what it may hold in the future. The faculty scholar will lead innovation based on expertise and these innovations will improve care not only at the practice site but dissemination of the results will transform care nationally and internationally. As SDSU prioritizes innovation and ingenuity to transform the practice of pharmacy, educating the next generation of healthcare professionals who will carry out our mission is critical to achieving our strategic vision. With the addition of this scholar, SDSU can foster discovery through research and advance the provision of healthcare.

The anticipated start date for this position is on or before July 2024.
