Pharmacist receives Excellence in Education Award

on Tuesday, 14 June 2022. Posted in Local News


   Kathryn Rice was recently awarded the 2022 South Carolina Area Health Education Consortium Sharm Steadman Excellence in Family Medicine Education Award for her role with the McLeod Family Medicine Residency Program. The award is given to a non-physician member of the faculty of a South Carolina family medicine residency program who has distinguished themselves as an outstanding teacher and role model.

     “Dr. Rice has served as a hospital Clinical Pharmacist at McLeod for more than ten years combining roles in intensive care clinical work, as well as an important teaching function as a clinical pharmacy student preceptor, prior to her current full time faculty role,” said McLeod Family Medicine Residency Program Director Dr. Gerard Jebaily. “She is an avid reader, and she contributed significantly to our inpatient team, matching current standards of care pharmacotherapy with patient care needs.

       ” Rice is very active in her profession. This year, she completed a faculty education certification from the American College of Clinical Pharmacists. This certification places her on a national level as one of 670 teaching clinical pharmacists who completed and graduated from this program.

     In September, she will participate in a seminar on quality improvement for the Society of Teachers in Family Medicine. She has also been involved with the development of the Family Medicine online curriculum designed to help residents meet Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education milestone criteria and develop skills of life-long learning.

     “One word that comes to mind in regards to Dr. Rice is dedication,” said Kelly Jones of the McLeod Family Medicine Residency Program. “She pours her life into the education of family medicine residents. Dr. Rice spends the majority of her time making sure the patients at McLeod are cared for and that residents are learning pharmacotherapy.

    “I could not think of a more perfect candidate for this award,” Jones added. “Dr. Rice embodies the work of Dr. Steadman. Her caring attitude for patients, residents, and students goes beyond most non-physician educators.”
