OUR MISSION

The College of Pharmacy is a nationally-recognized, statewide institution for the education

of pharmacy practitioners in the delivery of pharmaceutical care. This mission includes

the delivery of highest quality prelicensure education, graduate education in

the pharmaceutical and social/administrative sciences, and competency enhancement of

pharmacy practitioners. The college is the State’s resource for scientific investigation on

pharmaceutically-related health issues. Educational, service, and research programs are

tailored to meet the specific needs of the citizens of Idaho.

P REPARING LEAD


A L E T T E R F R O M T H E P R E S I D E N T

The College of Pharmacy has a proud history dating back to 1920. The college

presented the first baccalaureate degree conferred on the ISU campus which was at that time

the Southern Branch of the University of Idaho. The goals of the program have evolved in

complexity and sophistication over the years. The college’s administration, faculty, and staff

are committed to offering the highest quality professional pharmacy education,

enabling graduates to enhance the clinical, economic, and humanistic outcomes of

drug therapy for their patients.

The health care system, like the profession of pharmacy, is evolving rapidly. The

college will continue to play a vital role in the discovery of new knowledge in the

biomedical, social, administrative, and clinical sciences. Innovations will be created by

nurturing partnerships with health care providers, industry, business, and

government. The college’s well qualified and talented faculty will enhance Idaho

State University’s reputation even more in the exciting years ahead.

A MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN

The 1999-2000 year was marked by strategic planning, curriculum development, expansion of the

research program, and many other student and faculty accomplishments.

Drs. Adeboye Adejare and Nandita G. Das joined the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences in

the fall, adding teaching and research strength in medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutics, respectively.

Dr. Vinita Pai joined the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Administrative Sciences augmenting

the opportunity for pediatric clerkships in Boise.

The faculty undertook a careful revision of the college strategic plan in response to the faculty’s

self-study document as well as comments and recommendations outlined in the accreditation report

of the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education. Input was sought from a broad-based

constituency, including students and alumni in crafting the new document. The result, a new

vision, mission, and values statement along with updated goals and objectives that were

adopted unanimously by the faculty in January of 2000.

Dr. Cynthia Foster was appointed Director of Student Relations and Admissions. She is

charged with coordinating all recruiting and admissions and serves as the advisor for all prepharmacy

students. She and Dr. Paul Cady, Associate Dean, traveled the state to maintain

close contact with pre-pharmacy students and pre-professional advisors at all nine

institutions of higher learning in Idaho. Dr. Cady, working in collaboration with the faculty,

continuously assessed the curriculum and learning outcomes to ensure that the college is

preparing students to enter the rapidly changing pharmacy profession with abilities to

improve therapeutic outcomes and quality of life of their patients. With the help of alumni,

industry, and friends of the college, almost $101,000 in scholarships was awarded to

pharmacy students. The generosity of these committed individuals and companies makes a

world of difference in the lives of our students.

Seventy-three students graduated from the Doctor of Pharmacy program, 48 from the traditional

pathway and 25 from the nontraditional pathway. We are very proud of our graduates and wish them

every success as they begin their journey as practitioners and leaders in the profession and in their

communities. Fifty-six students were admitted to begin pharmacy studies in the fall of 2000.

Admission remains competitive, and the qualifications of these students are outstanding, not only

with regard to academic accomplishments, but also with respect to their experience, communications

skills, and commitment to their communities.

State appropriations increased only slightly and represented only 57% of the college's total

budget. Endowment earnings increased 126%, gifts and contributions increased 70%, and grants and

contracts increased 22% over the last fiscal year. These accomplishments speak to the dedication of

our excellent faculty and staff who worked tirelessly to fulfill the mission of the college and

University.

Excellence in teaching is a primary goal of the college. To ensure continued excellence, the faculty

from both academic departments worked extremely hard over the course of the year to develop a

revised curriculum. The Curricular Revision Task Force is comprised of Drs. Chris Daniels (Chair),

John Erramouspe, Rex Force, Barbara Mason, Leslie Devaud, Nikki Chopski, Nandita G. Das, and

professor Teddie Gould. Through numerous discussions, workgroups, and two retreats, the Task

Force led the faculty to adopt a new pre-pharmacy curriculum and designed the framework for the new

Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum. The entire faculty and student body are in their debt for their

dedication to curricular excellence as well as their unselfish commitment of time and creativity.

The faculty in the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Administrative Sciences continue to

focus attention on compensation for drug therapy management by pharmacists and strengthening of

collaborative practice arrangements with physician colleagues. Particular recognition goes to Drs.

Vaughn Culbertson, Rex Force, and Dennis Sawyer for their enormous efforts in these critical areas.

Over 150 students have graduated from the Nontraditional Doctor of Pharmacy Program since

its inception in 1989, and approximately 170 are currently enrolled. As no state-appropriated funds

are allocated to its operation, this program is entirely self-supporting. The nontraditional program

curriculum is challenging and continues to evolve, incorporating more case-based, active learning, and

electronic components. Drs. Vaughn Culbertson and Catherine Heyneman are to be commended for

their leadership of this program.

The research program continues to strengthen in both academic departments. Four

pharmacy faculty currently have research programs funded by the National Institutes of

"I have every confidence Health (NIH). These faculty are Drs. Leslie Devaud, Adeboye Adejare, Anna Ratka, and Rex

that faculty, staff,

students, alumni, &

friends of the College,

working in concert, can

achieve undreamed of

success in the years

ahead."

Force. For both departments, the number of published manuscripts, abstracts, and research

presentations continues to increase.

Dr. Jim Lai spent the spring semester on sabbatical at Yale University School of

Medicine studying alterations in brain metabolism during development, epilepsy, and

ischemic brain injury. Dr. Rex Lott was honored by the university as the Outstanding Public

Servant. The university presents this award to one faculty member each year, and the College

of Pharmacy is honored to have one of its own recognized in this way. Additionally, Dr.

Eric Jarvi was recognized by ISU’s chapter of the Scientific Research Society, Sigma Xi, with

the Jerome Bigelow Award for his contribution to ISU and the community in science,

teaching, and research.

The college continues to contract with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare to

provide staff support for the Idaho Drug Utilization Review (DUR) Board. This Board is charged

with maximizing safe and cost-effective drug therapy for Idaho Medicaid recipients. The Board staff,

under the direction of Dr. Vaughn Culbertson, is responsible for analysis of drug use patterns,

designing educational and other interventions, and implementing all Board actions. Our activity in

this program enhances not only our teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, but also our

research and service mission.

The College of Pharmacy is so fortunate to have the highest caliber faculty and staff. The faculty’s

participation and leadership within local, state, and national professional and scientific associations

make a meaningful difference for the profession, our college, and ultimately for patient care in Idaho

and beyond. The staff go far beyond expectations on a daily basis, and do so for the love of the

college. We are so fortunate to be the beneficiaries of their loyalty. A huge thanks is also due our

affiliate and adjunct faculty. Without their many contributions, we simply could not succeed in

offering the highest quality pharmacy education.

The alumni and friends of the college are the final ingredient in our prescription for success.

Their many gifts – time, wisdom, and dollars – enable program enhancements that would otherwise

be impossible and help us transcend boundaries that have limited us in the past. I have every

confidence that working in concert with faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends of the college, we

can achieve undreamed of success in the years ahead.

FROM THE OFFICE OF THE BUSINESS MANAGER

The state-supported budget of Idaho State University College of Pharmacy increased

from $3,090,849 in Fiscal Year ’99 to $3,187,739 in Fiscal Year 2000. This represents a three

percent increase in state support for the college. The state-supported budget includes

monies for faculty and staff salaries, equipment, materials, supplies, and communication

costs for the college.

The college received gifts in the amount of $184,963 which includes contributions

made through the annual phonathon fund drive. Grants and contracts received by College

of Pharmacy faculty and graduate students in Fiscal Year 2000 totaled $744,729, and the

indirect cost recovery from grants was $33,368. Earnings from endowment funds netted

the college $657,744. Student fees added $693,815 to the college’s budget. Sales and services

brought in $32,423.

In order to fulfill the mission of the College of Pharmacy, state funds alone are not

enough to meet the needs of the educational, research, and service programs of the college.

Additional funding is needed for research, student support, equipment, technology

upgrades, student scholarships and fellowships as well as special programs. Annual giving

and endowment income are vital components of the college’s budget, and have continued

to grow in a time of modest, if any, increases in state budgets.

A F F A I R S

FROM THE OFFICE OF THE ASSOCIATE DEAN

Paul Cady, Ph.D,

Associate Dean

and Professor

The 1999-2000 year has been a year of change

and progress in student affairs. One change of note

was the appointment of Dr. Cynthia Foster as the

Director of Student Relations and Admissions.

Dr. Foster has been responsible for much of our

recruiting success this year. In addition to recruiting

and admissions, she serves as the advisor for all

pre-pharmacy students.

This year, 73 students graduated from the

professional program: 48 from the

traditional Doctor of Pharmacy program

and 25 from the nontraditional program.

Competition among employers for

graduates was intense. Recruiters from

across the country came to the college to

talk with our students. All students who

were seeking employment were able to find

a position. Five graduating students

reported that they had chosen to continue

their education by completing a postgraduate

residency program. We are proud

of all of our graduates. These fine

pharmacists are well prepared and capable

of becoming leaders and agents of change in the

profession.

With the assistance of alumni, industry, and

friends of the college, we were able to provide

scholarships for many of our students. During the

1999-2000 year, the college was able to award nearly

$101,000 to pharmacy students. On behalf of the

faculty and students, I would like to thank all those

that made contributions to scholarships and

endowments of the college. Their generosity makes

it possible for many of our students to pursue

their goal of becoming a pharmacist.

Changes in the profession of pharmacy are

opening doors to many new and exciting roles and

careers. It is wonderful to see the rapid

development and growth of collaborative practice

agreements in Idaho, and it is indeed exciting to see

our students working with pharmacists who have

developed specialty clinics and immunization

programs. The faculty at the College of Pharmacy

continue to evaluate the curriculum, ensuring that

we continue to prepare students to meet the

changing demands of the profession. The faculty

and students, with helpful input from

practitioners, are committed to ongoing

monitoring and revision of the curriculum.

Maintaining an adequate supply of

practitioners necessitates that we work diligently in

maintaining and recruiting pre-pharmacy students.

By advising and maintaining personal contact with

pre-pharmacy students at Idaho State University

and our affiliate institutions, the Associate Dean’s

office strives to assist students to prepare

themselves for admission into the Doctor of

Pharmacy program and the profession of

pharmacy. The Associate Dean’s office actively

recruits pre-pharmacy students and communicates

with advisors at Idaho’s nine institutions of

higher learning: Albertson College, Boise State

University, the College of Southern Idaho, Idaho

State University, Lewis and Clark State College,

North Idaho College, Northwest Nazarene

College, BYU-Idaho, and the University of Idaho.

Over the course of this year, Dr. Foster and I

were actively involved in recruitment as we traveled

the state, visiting pre-pharmacy students, potential

pre-pharmacy students and advisors at universities,

colleges, and high schools. In addition, numerous

potential recruits visited the college and met with

advisors. Such recruitment efforts are crucial and

rewarding as we seek to help students to prepare

for our competitive admissions process.

Admission into the traditional Doctor of

Pharmacy program remains competitive. Two

hundred and twenty-five applications were received

for the fall 2000 class. Of the 225 applications

received, 101 applicants were invited to interview,

and 56 were admitted to begin the fall 2000

semester. Idaho residents represented 74% of the

incoming class.

Participation in student activities was excellent

this year. Students of the college participated in

recruitment, admission interviews, research,

immunization clinics, poison prevention, health

fairs, and ISU Day at the Capitol. They also

8


S T U D E N T

A F F A I R S

provided Christmas presents for local families.

Various student activities included an awards

banquet to honor graduates as well as beginning

and end of the year picnics. Both picnics were

sponsored and coordinated by student

organizations. The end of the year picnic followed

a faculty-student golf tournament where the

students succeeded in humbling the faculty. These

and other activities provide valuable opportunities

for our students to socialize informally with faculty

and other students.

We are proud of our students. While

recruiting students throughout Idaho, I try to visit

as many pharmacies as possible. It is indeed

gratifying to see our past graduates who are very

successful practitioners, and it is very rewarding to

hear of their accomplishments and see the

difference they make for their patients and their

communities. I consider it a great privilege to have

played a small part in the education and training of

these fine pharmacists.

DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES

In 1999-2000, the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences continued its commitment

to a high quality of teaching combined with a renewed effort to strengthen research. Two

new faculty members, Drs. Adeboye Adejare and Nandita G. Das joined the department in

the fall. These two new faculty add teaching and research expertise in the areas of medicinal

chemistry and pharmaceutics, respectively. To support basic science research efforts, the

faculty must actively engage in intense national competition for research funding, a

significant challenge. The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences faculty, for the second year

in a row submitted over $2.9 million in research grants to various funding agencies, such as

the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), the

Burroughs Wellcome Fund, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy,

private funding organizations, and several pharmaceutical companies. Total

department research funding increased to over $900,000 from all sources. This

funding included three faculty research projects funded by the NIH which were

awarded to Dr. Leslie Devaud ($679,000 over 5 years), Dr. Adejare ($54,000 – 1 year),

and Dr. Anna Ratka ($50,000 – 1 year). The department faculty also had 24 research

manuscripts, review articles, and book chapters submitted, accepted, or published.

Dr. Jim Lai spent the spring 2000 semester on sabbatical at Yale University

School of Medicine. He spent six months absorbed in developing several

collaborative research projects studying how brain metabolism alters in epilepsy,

development, and ischemic brain injury. He returned energized with many excellent

ideas for research projects and ready for a significant research grant writing effort.

Drs. Eric Jarvi and Leslie Devaud continued to lead the department’s graduate

program. The graduate program now has ten Ph.D. students and three students

pursuing their Masters degree. The objectives of the program encompass the broad

training of Ph.D. pharmaceutical scientists, and include a strong component emphasizing

critical thinking as well as oral and written communication skills.

The faculty, in concert with the teaching mission of the university and college, were very

busy teaching courses at the undergraduate, graduate and professional program level (see

Appendix II). In addition to courses traditionally taught in the Pharm.D. program, the

faculty also taught over 30 credit hours divided among 14 sections of service courses to

other health professions programs in locations including Pocatello, Lewiston, Twin Falls,

Boise, and Idaho Falls.

In the area of university service, faculty are extremely busy with responsibilities in the

operation and self-governance of the college and university. These duties go far beyond

their customary teaching responsibilities. Their accomplishments bring a strong sense of

pride and recognition to the college and university as well. Highlighting one service effort,

Dr. Eric Jarvi was recognized by ISU’s chapter of the Scientific Research Society, Sigma Xi,

with the Jerome Bigelow Award for his contributions to ISU and the community in

science, teaching, and research.

The next several years will be exciting for the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences as

the five new faculty have brought renewed vigor to the department’s research efforts and

fresh ideas to our teaching efforts. Over the next year, the entire faculty will be designing a

new curriculum. All these varied efforts collectively will enhance the visibility and prestige of

the department, the college, and the university.

DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACY PRACTICE & ADMINISTRATIVE SCIENCES

Vaughn Culbertson,

Pharm.D.,

Chair, Department

of Pharmacy

Practice &

Administrative

Sciences

During academic year 1999-2000, department faculty undertook a variety of curricular,

research, and committee service activities to stay abreast of the challenges impacting

pharmacy practice and education. Adding to these challenges are the many therapeutic,

biomedical, and technological advancements that affect the delivery of pharmaceutical care

services on a daily basis. The positive responses to these formidable tasks have been

extremely gratifying, and I would like to briefly comment on some of the faculty’s activities

and accomplishments during the year.

Curriculum revision was an important effort during the academic year, and I would like

to recognize Drs. Erramouspe, Force, Mason, and Professor Gould for their unselfish

dedication and significant efforts as part of the Curricular Revision Task Force.

Their efforts were instrumental in the development of a contemporary curricular

framework that will continue the high standards expected of ISU graduates.

Although much work remains, I commend the faculty for their commitment to

educational excellence and a state-of-the-art professional curriculum.

Additionally, the department has continued to focus attention on

reimbursement of cognitive services as a critical professional issue. In this regard, I

would like to recognize Dr. Dennis Sawyer for his enormous energy and efforts in

pushing this agenda forward, not only within Idaho but on a national level as well.

Dr. Sawyer has been a long time Affiliate Faculty member, teaching Clinical

Pharmacokinetics as well as providing clerkship instruction. As Dr. Sawyer and other

clinical faculty continue to develop and strengthen collaborative practice

arrangements with their physician colleagues, I look forward to reporting some

exciting achievements in this arena.

A continuing emphasis on research and scholarship is evident from the department’s

contribution to funded grants and scholarly publications. Departmental faculty contributed

as principal investigators to four research projects and five educational or service contracts

during the academic year. A similar trend is evident from the list of publications authored

during the year, which included 22 published manuscripts and 7 book chapters.

Additionally, departmental faculty presented 17 abstracts at national scientific and

professional meetings.

In the areas of committee service and patient care, it is evident that the faculty were

extremely hard-working, far beyond their customary teaching responsibilities. Additionally,

departmental faculty members delivered more than 19 presentations to the general public,

pharmacists, various health care practitioners, and other researchers during the academic year.

Furthermore, faculty members participated in local, state, and national pharmacy

organizations. Many faculty were actively involved in daily patient care responsibilities and

collaborated closely with other health care practitioners in the community via patient care

conferences and committees. Finally, department faculty served on a number of college and

university committees. Each member of the department deserves recognition for their

individual contributions. Their accomplishments are truly remarkable and bring a strong

sense of pride and recognition to the college and university as well.

I would like to recognize the nearly 200 affiliate faculty who contribute so importantly

to our educational program. Additionally, I would like to recognize a special group of

practitioners/educators. This special group includes pharmacists at the University of

Nevada Medical Center, Las Vegas, NV; Reno VA Medical Center, Reno, NV; Washoe

Regional Medical Center, Reno, NV; the Naval Medical Center, San Diego, CA; and Magic

Valley Regional Medical Center, Twin Falls, ID. This group of individuals exemplifies the

best in pharmacy education and practice on a daily basis. Moreover, they have contributed

significantly and positively to the clinical clerkship program for many years. Finally,

recognition is due to departmental secretaries Ms. Sharlene Hetrick and Ms. Chris Marenda.

Their extraordinary skill and abilities in managing the myriad of details each day never ceases

to amaze me. I thank all of you for your dedication and devotion to the college and our

students. Your efforts are essential to our success.

I am extremely proud of the department’s record of accomplishments, and am again

honored to have served as chair. Perhaps most importantly, however, I believe the future

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Wendy Force, R.Ph.,

Continuing Education

Specialist

The College of Pharmacy has maintained an

active role in providing continuing education (CE)

to pharmacists in the state of Idaho. As the

complexity of providing pharmaceutical care has

become more challenging, practicing pharmacists

desire our faculty’s expertise to update their skills

and continue to develop their own level of

competency. As such, the college has continued to

offer the following quality programs:

LIVE CE PROGRAMMING

From July 1, 1999 to June 30, 2000,

the college provided and/or sponsored

139 hours of live programming for

pharmacists in Idaho and other areas. Live

programming topics included disease-state

management, pharmacotherapy, pharmacy

practice legal issues, physical assessment,

and immunizations. Programs were

offered throughout the country, including

Mississippi, California, Idaho, New York,

and Texas. One thousand, one hundred

and sixteen pharmacists attended these programs,

earning 11,901 hours of CE.

HOME CORRESPONDENCE COURSES

The college is committed to providing CE to

pharmacists statewide. While a large portion of the

Idaho population is located in the Boise area, the

college recognizes the need to extend opportunities

for pharmacists in rural areas to obtain CE credit.

Over the past year, the college offered 27 Pharmat

courses. Pharmat allows practitioners to increase

their knowledge through home, self-paced study.

Each program is developed by college faculty

members nationwide and meets ACPE standards

for content and quality. The following topics were

offered: AIDS, arthritis, asthma, diet disorders,

drug interactions, drug counseling, impotence,

infectious diseases, pain management,

pharmacoeconomics, pharmacy federal law,

smoking cessation, ulcers, and a host of others.

Thirty-three pharmacists completed home

correspondence programs and received 393 hours

of CE credit.

NONTRADITIONAL PROGRAM CE

Additionally, the college offered CE to

nontraditional Pharm.D. students. Each course,

developed by ISU faculty, uses videotapes,

textbooks, and workbooks to provide a

comprehensive study of each area. Pharmacists

from across the nation received credit after

successfully completing any of the following

courses and clerkships:

• Courses: Clinical Chemistry, Clinical

Pharmacokinetics, Clinical Research Design and

Analysis, Drug Information, Human

Pathophysiology, Basic Immunology, Pathogenic

Microbiology, Therapeutics I, Therapeutics II,

Problems in Pharmaceutical Diagnosis, Physical

Assessment, Quality Assurance, and Cost

Containment.

• Clerkships: ambulatory care, internal medicine,

and pharmaceutical care.

One hundred thirty-one pharmacists completed

these programs during 1999-2000 receiving 4,635

hours of CE credit.

SUMMARY COMPARISON

Overall, 1,280 pharmacists completed live,

home correspondence or nontraditional CE

programs totaling 16,929 hours of CE. The college

received CE funding support this past year from:

American Society of US Surgeons; Idaho State

Board of Pharmacy; ISU Speakers and Artists

Committee; Peer Perspectives, A Division of

Robert A Becker, Inc.; and the Society of Air Force

Pharmacists.

PHARMACY PRACTICE RESIDENCY PROGRAM

Continuing development of pharmacy practice postgraduate training opportunities was an important

accomplishment during the 1999-2000 academic year. Pharmacy practice residents participated in numerous

professional and educational activities. In addition to pharmaceutical care responsibilities, their efforts included

student clerkship teaching, case study tutorials, presentation of seminars and posters at state and national

meetings, delivery of numerous in-service educational programs, and research projects.

Despite increasing financial pressures, we are optimistic about future opportunities and enthusiastically

committed to a strong postgraduate training program to meet the health care needs of Idaho citizens. Two new

residency positions were added for 1999-2000, and we look forward to funding of additional residency and

fellowship experiences in the future.

IDAHO DRUG INFORMATION SERVICE

Catherine

Heyneman,

Pharm.D., Director

Idaho Drug

Information Service

and Assistant

Director

Nontraditional

Pharm.D. Program

The Idaho Drug Information Service, directed

by Jan Beckwith, Pharm.D. and Catherine

Heyneman, Pharm.D., MS, is located on the top

floor of Idaho State University’s Oboler Library in

Pocatello. This service provides pharmaceutical care

consults and drug information to physicians,

pharmacists, and laypersons throughout the state

of Idaho. Additionally, the Drug Information

Service provides instruction and training in

drug information to first- and fourthprofessional

year ISU College of Pharmacy

students.

The Drug Information Service

maintains up-to-date electronic

information through the purchase of

Micromedex Ò and International

Pharmaceutical Abstracts and by utilizing

other medical databases available through

Oboler Library and on the Internet.

Nine fourth-professional year Doctor

of Pharmacy candidates completed clinical

clerkships in drug information in 1999-

2000. Two of these students wrote drug

consults which have been published in the

Micromedex Ò system - a database considered

essential in almost all hospital pharmacy settings.

Dr. Heyneman has utilized the resources

available at the Idaho Drug Information Service to

publish a review article on infliximab in

Pharmacotherapy, a drug information rounds

article on the use of calcitonin for phantom limb

pain in The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, two book

chapters in the Pharmacotherapy Casebook, two

WebStudies cases, and several drug consults in

Micromedex Ò .

The Idaho Drug Information Service offers a

one-year residency in drug information. This

training program is designed for recent graduates

who want to pursue publication in the biomedical

literature, develop mastery of skills, and attain an

expert level of competency in drug information.

Residents gain experience in teaching drug

information and case studies to traditional and

nontraditional Pharm.D. students; preparing and

publishing drug consults; reviewing articles, and

WebStudies cases; as well as administration of an

academic drug information service.

1999 ISU PHARMACY CLASS SCORES BIG

The Idaho State University Doctor of Pharmacy class of 1999 had a pass rate of 100 percent on the

North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam (NAPLEX), the national licensure exam for pharmacists,

announced Dr. Barbara G. Wells, dean of the ISU College of Pharmacy.

Fifty-one ISU Pharm.D. students took the exam last summer. “The ISU College of Pharmacy has

had a passing rate of 98 percent for several years, but our goal has been a 100 percent pass rate,” said

Wells. “I couldn’t be more proud of our students and faculty.”

C O L L E G E P R O G R A M S

NONTRADITIONAL PHARM.D. PROGRAM

The nontraditional doctor of pharmacy (Non-

T) program is designed to provide practitioners

holding a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy and a valid

U.S. or Canadian pharmacy license the opportunity

to earn a Pharm.D. degree without returning full

time to a college campus. During the 1999-2000

fiscal year, the program was coordinated by Drs.

Vaughn Culbertson and Catherine Heyneman.

ADMISSION PROCEDURE

Candidates for the Non-T Pharm.D. program

must complete an admissions procedure that

includes submitting documented evidence of a

strong academic record, clinical experience, and past

achievements as a pharmacy practitioner. Priority is

given to residents of Idaho; however, pharmacists

are encouraged to apply regardless of their state of

residence. Prior to admission to the program,

candidates must travel to Pocatello to complete an

assessment process, which includes interviews and

baseline evaluation of clinical skills.

THE PROGRAM

The Non-T curriculum includes 28 credits

of didactic course work that are taught utilizing a

combination of videotapes, interactive web-based

case studies, detailed syllabi, and textbooks. Each

course is completely self-paced, with an assigned

instructor who is available to students via

telephone or e-mail for questions or assistance. It

is recommended that the didactic course work be

completed within a 3-year time frame. Upon

completion of the didactic portion of the Non-T

program, students must perform 28 weeks of

clerkship training in various clinical pharmacy

disciplines. These 28 weeks need not be completed

consecutively. Over 300 clerkship sites have been

established throughout the United States and

Canada.

ENROLLMENT AND GRADUATES

As of May 2000 the Non-T program has

graduated 153 students. Currently, there are over

170 active students enrolled throughout the U.S.

and Canada. Our graduates continue to excel in the

pharmacy arena; some publish in the pharmacy/

medical literature and two recent graduates have

accepted faculty appointments at other colleges of

pharmacy.

PROGRAM CHANGES

The Non-T program has begun to attract a

significant number of applicants from Canada.

Only two Canadian colleges of pharmacy offer the

Doctor of Pharmacy degree, making our program a

desirable alternative for pharmacists in

rural Canada. Clerkship sites are being

developed in British Columbia, and

discussion of a joint Non-T program has

been initiated with the University of

British Columbia.

Additionally, the Non-T program

has entered into a collaborative clinical

training agreement with the University of

Utah College of Pharmacy. The intent of

this agreement is to allow licensed

pharmacists who are residents of and

practicing in the state of Utah access to our

Non-T program at a reduced tuition rate.

Utah-based students will first complete the

standard 28 semester credit hours of didactic

course work through ISU. Once complete, the

experiential portion of the program will be

continued under the auspices of the University of

Utah’s College of Pharmacy at their approved

clinical training sites. Upon completion of the joint

program, the Doctor of Pharmacy degree will be

conferred by Idaho State University.

Everyone benefits from this agreement. ISU

benefits by bringing more Utah pharmacists into

our existing didactic curriculum. The University of

Utah benefits by avoiding the high start-up and

maintenance costs of repackaging their curriculum

into a distance learning format. Most importantly,

Utah pharmacists benefit by having access to ISU’s

well-established, high quality Non-T program. We

hope to pursue similar collaborative training

agreements with other colleges of pharmacy in the

near future.

IDAHO DRUG UTILIZATION REVIEW PROGRAM

The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of

1990 (OBRA 90) requires that each state establish

a drug utilization review (DUR) program for

Medicaid outpatients. As a result of this federal

mandate, the Idaho Department of Health and

Welfare created the Idaho DUR Program. This

program is designed to help enhance the quality

of care for outpatients receiving prescription

medications by assuring appropriate drug therapy.

Currently the College of Pharmacy is the

department’s agent for implementation of the

OBRA 90 requirements regarding retrospective

DUR.

Retrospective DUR includes periodic

examination of drug claims data and other

records to identify prescribing and dispensing

patterns. The screening includes comparing

patient medication information against drug use

criteria. Over the past seven years, the DUR staff

has created explicit drug use criteria covering 20

drug classes and approximately 200 of the most

commonly prescribed drug products. These

criteria represent standards or guidelines for

appropriate drug use, as well as identifiable

circumstances in which specific drug therapy entails

a high risk for adverse effects. Employing the

expertise of individual faculty members within

the college, criteria were formulated using standard

drug compendia and an extensive review of the

clinical literature. Approximately 100 drug-specific

criteria have been designated as potentially highcost

or high-risk drug use situations in which

communication with physicians and pharmacists

is deemed necessary to alert them of potential

problems.

The following problem types are screened:

age-drug contraindication, required use of generic

drugs, drug-disease contraindications, drug-drug

interactions, incorrect drug dosage, incorrect

duration of drug treatment, over- and underutilization,

as well as therapeutic duplication.

THE DUR BOARD

The Medicaid-appointed DUR Board is the

decision-making body responsible for

implementing and operating the DUR Program.

Comprised of three practicing physicians, three

practicing pharmacists, and one non-practicing

physician the board is responsible for evaluating

practitioner prescribing and dispensing behavior

and determining

responsible for

implementation of all

board actions.

ISU members of the 1999-00 DUR staff

included: Vaughn Culbertson, Pharm.D., Project

Director; Paul Cady, Ph.D., Data Management; Rex

Force, Pharm.D., Research Director; Wendy Force,

R.Ph., Clinical Specialist; Craig Kelley, B.S.,

Computing; and Julie Johnson, Pharm.D.,

Resident. Additionally, Dean Barbara G. Wells

served at the board level as secretary.

The board’s primary emphasis is educational,

providing information concerning drug therapy to

practitioners via profile review, educational leaflets,

and direct provider contact.

PROVIDER EDUCATION

The board, with recommendations from the

DUR staff, approve all intervention strategies

deemed necessary to improve the quality of care

being delivered to Idaho Medicaid clients.

Remedial strategies can include, but are not limited

to:

18


C O L L E G E P R O G R A M S

•Written personal communications from the board

to providers requesting information and

documentation of specific drug use decisions

•Educational leaflets summarizing the mechanism,

presentation, and possible solutions for a large

number of common drug-related problems

•Cost graphics that summarize the relative cost

implications and emphasize cost-effective

alternatives

•Specifically designed and presented continuing

education programs targeted for providers at

professional meetings

•Direct, personal contact with individual providers

deemed to be repeat or long-term irrational

prescribers or dispensers. Contact may take place

with members of the board, qualified staff

approved by the board, or clinical consultants.

RETROSPECTIVE INTERVENTIONS

The DUR staff has been actively involved in

developing and performing interventions that

improve the prescribing and dispensing habits of

Medicaid providers. In addition to improved

patient care, many interventions result in cost

savings to the Department of Health and Welfare

for prescription medications. During FY1999-00,

eleven interventions were performed that covered

the therapeutic categories of drug/disease

Craig Kelley (Front L to R) Wendy Force, R.Ph., Dr. Julie

Johnson, and Dr. Vaughn Culbertson.

contraindication, drug/drug interaction, incorrect

duration, over-utilization, therapeutic duplication,

and under-utilization.

Additionally, the DUR database is frequently

used to identify situations of medication overuse

or abuse by recipients or high-risk drug therapy

resulting from multiple providers. In the latter

circumstance, the DUR program provides

extremely valuable information to physicians and

pharmacists who may be unaware of each other’s

contribution to the recipient’s medical care.

EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE

The DUR program has proved to be an

extremely valuable resource to students and faculty

at ISU as well as to other state agencies. The

Colleges of Pharmacy and Business have both

used the DUR project as an educational and

teaching resource.

Professional and graduate students in the

college have actively participated in development

of clinical criteria (practice standards) as well as

data collection and analysis. This experience aids

students in understanding the difficulties of

working with complex databases, as well as the

strengths and weaknesses of DUR. This

experience is an important component of a wellrounded

education and is possible only because

the data are available on campus.

The College of Business also uses the DUR

database to teach part of its medical-informatics

program, providing students with a background

in hospital, community, and other medical

information systems. Through the DUR project,

both undergraduate and graduate students have

been provided the opportunity to address real life

problems by designing computer software and

applications for use by health care practitioners and

the community.

PROFESSIONAL & SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITIES

During the 1999-00 reporting period, the

DUR staff published eight abstracts. Additionally,

one paper was submitted for publication.

THE YEAR IN GIVING

The College of Pharmacy gratefully acknowledges the gifts of alumni and friends who

support the education of future pharmacists. The gifts shown here are so vitally important

to the continued success of the college. Without these gifts, the college would be thwarted

in its pursuit of excellence and in its effort to support technological advances necessary for a

cutting edge pharmacy education. All gifts are important to the college as we seek to

compete for the best students from Idaho and beyond.

During 1999-2000 through the generosity of our alumni and friends, three new

scholarship endowments were established. Frank L. Savage, Joseph W. Carlson, and Harold

W. Driver each created new scholarships that will make a difference in the lives of pharmacy

students. In addition, Ara Paul, Professor Emeritus Nevada Marie Higgins,

Virginia Kanarr and Harold Driver each created planned gifts which will ultimately

benefit pharmacy students. Significant additional gifts to existing endowments were

received from Sidney L. Sly, Neal and Dorothy Broyles, June H. Peterson, Roy Y.

and Linda Sumida, Dr. Barbara G. and Richard Wells, and Raymond J. and Joan

Pullen.

Thanks also go to corporate donors who have supported us during the year.

Our most notable corporate donors were Albertson’s Inc. and National Data

Corporation Health Info Systems who donated and installed state-of-the-art

prescription dispensing hardware and software in the Reed B. Peterson Pharmacy

Practice Lab. Also, Shire Laboratories, Inc. generously donated HPLC equipment for

the research program of Drs. Sudip and Nan Das. Matching gift companies bring

extra power to individual gifts.

Special efforts to reach out to classmates by alumni Sidney Sly, Bill Eames, and

Joseph Carlson exemplify the remarkable commitment ISU College of Pharmacy graduates

have to their alma mater. The beginning of this commitment is clearly shown by students

as they assisted with the Pharmacy Phonathon, this year receiving a record of over $49,000

in pledges from alumni and friends. Thanks to all of the generous donors to the College

of Pharmacy.

"All gifts, large and small,

are important to the

College."

COLLEGE RECEIVES NEW FUNDING 1999-2000

The number of scholarship endowments for the college was boosted during the 1999-

2000 fiscal year, as four alumni made generous contributions to establish four new

scholarship funds.

THE PAST PRESIDENTS OF IDAHO STATE PHARMACY ASSOCIATION

Marion Bowen, R.Ph

SCHOLARSHIP ENDOWMENT

After many years of annual scholarship support, the Idaho State Pharmacy Association

(ISPA) Past Presidents established The Past Presidents of Idaho State Pharmacy Association

Scholarship Endowment to support students in perpetuity. The scholarship is awarded to a

pharmacy student who is a resident of Idaho. The endowment was created as a result of

the on-going leadership and stewardship of alumna Marion Bowen, a 1952 graduate of the

college. “Scholarships are really needed for ISU students of pharmacy. Many of the ISPA

Past Presidents received scholarships from ISU and now they choose to give back to help

current students,” stated Marion Bowen.

Joseph W. Carlson

JOSEPH W. CARLSON SCHOLARSHIP ENDOWMENT

Alumnus Joseph W. Carlson established the Joseph W. Carlson Scholarship

Endowment. Earnings from this endowment will provide assistance to married students

in the third and fourth years of their professional pharmacy program. Specifically, the

scholarship endowment targets pharmacy students that may not have the resources to

complete their education without financial assistance.

Harold W. Driver

HAROLD W. AND LOIS AUSTIN DRIVER PHARMACY FELLOWSHIP

Harold Driver established the Harold W. and Lois Austin Driver Pharmacy Fellowship

to provide scholarship funds to a married P-4 student completing rotations outside the

Pocatello area. This Fellowship honors Harold’s wife Lois, a 1943 University of Idaho

Southern Branch graduate in Music and Secondary Education, who passed away six years

ago.

FRANK L. SAVAGE SCHOLARSHIP ENDOWMENT

Frank Savage, a 1951 graduate of the Idaho State University College of Education

majoring in Physical Education has created a scholarship endowment in his name. For most

of Frank's life, he worked with the pharmaceutical industry and because he realizes the

benefit and has seen the potential for pharmacists to help in their communities as well as

the pharmaceutical industry, Frank decided to create a scholarship. The Frank L. Savage

Scholarship Endowment has been created for promising pharmacy students.

ACADEMY OF STUDENTS OF PHARMACY (ASP)

Duane Siercke - President

Mike McDevitt - President-elect

Heather Anderson - Secretary

Jennifer Garner - Treasurer

Eric J. Jarvi, Ph.D - Faculty Advisor

The Academy of Students of Pharmacy

(ASP), a student branch of the American

Pharmaceutical Association (APhA) is the largest

pharmacy student organization in the

nation. Idaho State University’s chapter of

ASP hosts a sizeable membership and is

very active within the region, building

leadership qualities within its members

while motivating and empowering them to

become professionals within the field of

pharmacy.

During the 1999-2000 academic year,

ASP sponsored the following successful

annual events:

Pharmacy Fair, which offers personal

interviews with employment recruiters

from around the country for ISU students.

■ A dutch oven dinner in conjunction with

the Pharmacy Fair which provides an opportunity

for students, recruiters, faculty, and peers to

socialize.

■ A spaghetti dinner and auction raised travel funds

for 17 chapter members to attend the national

APhA-ASP meeting held in Washington, D.C. and

aid for a fellow student who was battling leukemia.

■ A patient counseling competition held in February

which allowed students to sharpen their counseling

skills and offered the opportunity to channel their

knowledge into an informative scenario. This year’s

winner, Jennifer Payton, was invited to compete at

the National Patient Counseling Competition at the

APhA-ASP National Meeting in Washington D.C.

In addition to the chapter’s annual events,

members had the opportunity to travel. Several

members attended the ASP Midyear Regional

Meeting held in Missoula, MT, and 17 members

attended the APhA-ASP National Meeting in

Washington D.C. Each meeting provided students

with an opportunity to network with other

students and pharmacists in the region as well as

the nation.

ASP joined forces with the Idaho State

Pharmacy Association (ISPA) to co-sponsor a

speaker who presented insight into opportunities

in compounding pharmacy and hosted a

continuing education program, which featured two

guest speakers that delivered excellent seminars on

breast cancer.

Due to chapter efforts, Operation

Immunization was again a success and earned ISU

its third regional award in a row. Operation

Immunization is a program which increases the

community’s awareness about immunizations and

allows pharmacy students to deliver

immunizations to the elderly, students, and the

homeless.

ASSOCIATED GRADUATE STUDENTS OF

PHARMACY

Launa Lynch - President

John Beck (fall semester) and Hemant Phatak

(spring semester) - Vice President

Kalind Pradhan - Treasurer

Eric Jarvi. Ph.D. - Faculty Advisor

AGSP, the Associated Graduate Students of

Pharmacy, affectionately known as Animal Pharm,

had an active and productive year.

Many graduate students received awards for

research or travel funds for their graduate projects

during the 1999-00 academic year. Kalind Pradhan,

Launa Lynch, Gaurangi Malthankar, and Alaba

Ogunbadeniyi received Animal Pharm presentation

awards. The graduate students found time in their

busy schedules to hold four fundraisers.

Animal Pharm challenged the faculty and

staff to sporting event competitions throughout

the academic year. The purpose was to increase the

interaction between the graduate students, faculty,

and staff. It was a great start on a new tradition

that hopefully will be continued next year.

The membership is increasing as the graduate

program in the College of Pharmacy grows.

The 1999-2000 school year was a busy and

productive one for ASHP. Membership is up with

the addition of 11 new members, one of whom is

a pre-pharmacy student. The year began with an

ASHP membership presentation at the P-1

Seminar held in August. Information and

applications were made available to all students.

The Clinical Skills Competition, held in

September at Idaho State University was a great

success. Our winners, Brian Christiansen and Jason

Glick, went on to represent Idaho State University

at the National Competition in Orlando, Florida.

ASHP/ISHP, Phi Lambda Sigma, and the

Student Senate joined forces to sponsor a canned

food drive for Thanksgiving in which over 200

food items were donated. In April ‘99,

GlaxoWellcome and ASHP co-sponsored a lecture

entitled Migrane Awareness and Treatment,

presented by Dr. Erick W. Garland, a neurologist.

Finally, ASHP presented a Poison Prevention

Program to over 500 school age children in

Pocatello, including ISU’s Early Learning Center.

was organized to promote professional and social

activities in the spirit of brotherhood. Phi Delta

Chi promotes unity within the college by

collaborating with other pharmacy student

organizations in events such as Walk Diabetes, the

ISU Homecoming Parade, and Operation

Immunization.

Phi Delta Chi serves the community by

volunteering at the Pocatello Free Clinic and

providing a student representative to the clinic's

Board of Directors. The chapter created a window

display that was placed in area pharmacies, which

provided jargon-free pamphlets about

high blood pressure. Additionally, the

chapter held several brotherhood activities

such as a Thanksgiving potluck and regular

Executive Committee breakfasts. Chapter "ASHP presented a Poison

Student Senate is the governing body for the

college’s student body. It includes the president and vicepresident

of each professional class, a representative of

both graduate programs, the president of each student

organization within the college, and the ASISU pharmacy

senator. The Senate facilitates communication between

the students, pharmacy organizations, faculty, and the

dean.

This year the Senate helped to facilitate the

development of a new pharmacy logo, which is available

at SLT Graphics, Pocatello, for anyone who wishes to put

the new logo on any item of clothing.

Discussion of a separate graduation ceremony for

pharmacy students was initiated by the 1998-1999

Student Senate, and carried forward to the 1999-2000

Senate. Tom Wadsworth, 1999-2000 ASISU Pharmacy

Senator, represented the college and was chair of a

separate graduation committee established to research the

issue. Wadsworth wrote a resolution establishing a

separate graduation ceremony for the College of

Pharmacy. The resolution was then presented to ASISU

and passed unanimously in April 2000. The 2000-2001

Senate will continue discussion of this issue.

The Senate, along with the College of Pharmacy

student body, provided Christmas presents to two local

families in need of holiday assistance. The Senate

established mailboxes in the office to help facilitate

communication between the different classes.

Additionally, many individual members of the Senate

were involved in other projects such as Project

Immunization, the ISU Health Fair, and various canned

food drives. The senate also sponsored the end of the

school year picnic at Ross Park.
