Dennis Killian, Pharmacy Director at Peninsula Regional Medical Center
The University of Maryland Eastern Shore Public Relations office issued the following release today that we are pleased to share.
Dennis Killian, pharmacy director at Salisbury's Peninsula Regional Medical Center, has accepted an offer from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore to be interim dean of its pharmacy school.
"I'm humbled by this exceptional honor of being asked to join and collaboratively work with the academic leaders and the dedicated students to ensure the continued success and growth of this outstanding program during this transition," Killian said.
He replaces Nicholas R. Blanchard, who in late November announced his resignation to become dean of pharmacy at West Coast University in Los Angeles.
Blanchard's last day at UMES is Jan. 24. He was hired in 2008 to launch the School of Pharmacy, which enrolled its first class in August 2010.
Killian, who in addition to his job at PRMC also is a UMES professor, begins his new administrative duties today. He'll continue to hold positions at both institutions while UMES conducts a national search for a new dean.
"We're fortunate to have a professional of Dr. Killian's caliber and experience in our midst to help us through this leadership transition," said Ronald Nykiel, UMES provost and vice president for academic affairs.
Nykiel said Killian's appointment as interim dean underscores the cooperation between the university and PRMC, a leader in providing requisite field experience training required of pharmacy students. That collaborative relationship was an important factor in UMES' pharmacy program earning national accreditation in June 2013 just a month after its inaugural class graduated.
