Katherine P. Smith, PharmD, FCCP, BCPS
Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice
PGY1 Community Pharmacy Residency Director

Professional background

I’ve been working as a clinical pharmacist and faculty member since 2001 and have practiced in teaching hospital and ambulatory care settings.  I completed an accredited PGY-1 residency at the University of Arizona and University Medical Center (now Banner UMC) and a specialty residency in pediatrics at the University of Tennessee and LeBonheur Children’s Hospital.  My professional and research interests include immunology, women’s health, pediatrics, drug information, preventative care, LGBT health, and pharmacy education (residencies in particular).

What do you love about working at Roseman?

Roseman has grown tremendously since I started working here 16 years ago, and I’ve always loved having opportunities to challenge myself professionally.  In academia, it’s not uncommon for there to be a lot of autonomy in faculty positions, but the ability to try out different practice areas, course responsibilities, and research areas has kept me engaged and excited to go to work!

What do you enjoy most about working with residents?

I love watching that confidence grow as residents turn all of their knowledge from classes and rotations into decisions that help real patients.  It can be a scary time when they first hear themselves referred to as “the pharmacist,” so I love to be there to help make that transition easier.

 

Catherine Cone, PharmD
Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice
Assistant Dean for Assessment

Professional background

I completed my pharmacy practice residency at the New Mexico VA Health Care System in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1998 where I continued to work for 11 years. I worked as an inpatient clinical pharmacist, as an ambulatory care specialist with prescriptive authority and as the residency program director at the VA prior to moving into academia. I joined faculty at the University of New Mexico in 2007 where I managed 2 skills lab courses where simulation was the focus for integrated learning. My practice site was an Occupational Medicine clinic at Sandia National Laboratories. My research focus is on the scholarship of teaching and learning with particular interest in critical thinking, cultural competence/disabilities, and debriefing. In 2015, I joined Roseman University of Health Sciences as the Assistant Dean for Assessment where she coordinates the Pharmacist Patient Care Practice Blocks.

What do you love about working at Roseman?

Working at Roseman isn’t just a job, it’s a family that wants to see each and every member succeed.

What do you enjoy most about working with residents?

I’ve always enjoyed working with residents.  Residents are the best of the best students who bring with them new vitality, thoughts on how to make practices better, and the excitement for learning new things.

 

Judith M. Turner, DVM, PharmD
Clinical Pharmacist
People’s Health Clinic

Professional Background

I received my bachelor of science and doctoral degrees in veterinary medicine at Texas A & M University. After a hiatus to raise a family, I decided to return to school, and received my PharmD degree at Roseman. I was the first pharmacy resident at People’s Health Clinic, and continue to enjoy providing care there as a volunteer and a preceptor. My research project as a resident was in the field of diabetes, and I am an AADE level 1 diabetes educator. I am currently preparing for the BCACP exam.

What do you love about practicing at People’s Health Clinic?

I love the collaborative atmosphere among the staff and volunteer providers at the clinic. There is great respect for how other providers contribute to excellent patient care. I also love our patients, and the process of gaining insights into the best way to help each patient with health planning and improvement. There are often learners with other volunteers, and I found it a great place to be a learner with many willing instructors.

What do you enjoy most about working with residents?

It’s rewarding to watch residents develop from new practitioners to confident contributors to the health care team.
