Pharmacy Practice Faculty Member Receives Board Certification for Pharmacotherapy

Dr. Madison Como of the FAMU CoPPS, IPH Durell Peaden Jr. Rual Pharmacy Campus has recently received board certification with a specialty in Pharmacotherapy (BCPS) through the Board of Specialty Pharmacies.

Dr. Como, an assistant professor of pharmacy practice, is the first to receive a certification on the Peaden campus, according to Dr. Margareth Larose-Pierre, Founding Campus Dean, Director, and Professor of the Durell Peaden Jr. Rural Pharmacy Education Campus

“Dr. Como has been a wonderful addition to the Peaden Campus. As a board-certified pharmacist, in the area of pharmacy practice, she brings a wealth of knowledge and clinical experience to our learners in the area of pharmacy,” Dr. Larose-Pierre said.

Dr. Como said, “BCPS certification gives me the knowledge and skills necessary to both teach and provide patient-centered and evidence-based care at a higher level. The BCPS certification can also allow for further opportunities to be integrated as part of a multidisciplinary healthcare team to provide optimal patient care.”

There are currently 15 board-certified pharmacist faculty in the College including Dr. Como.
