Dr. H. Glenn Anderson Jr., former associate dean of academic affairs at the
Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, has been named associate dean for
academic and curricular affairs at the Marshall University School of Pharmacy.
He began his duties Aug. 17.
Anderson was a founding faculty member of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, where he began his academic career in 1996 as an assistant professor of pharmacy practice. While in that position, he developed the school’s first residency program. He was promoted to associate professor in 2002 and trained the school’s first post-doctoral fellow in drug information. Anderson then served as Tech Tech’s interim associate dean of curriculum from 2005 until 2006, when he was named associate dean of academic affairs.
In addition to his teaching, mentoring and administrative roles at Texas Tech, Anderson has held several practice positions, including clinical pharmacist with the Northwest Texas Healthsystems, clinical pharmacist with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Managed Care, director of the Drug Information Residency Program and director of the Drug Information and Health Policy Development Center.
He also has worked as a pharmacist at the Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center in Huntington and the Ohio State Medical Center in Columbus. He served as a consultant for the Geriatric Medication Project sponsored by Merck-Medco Containment Services.
“I look forward to the challenges and opportunities involved in helping to establish the Marshall University School of Pharmacy,” said Anderson. “The university’s slogan, ‘We Are…Marshall,’ invites interpretations of uniqueness and of excellence that are worthy goals for a new program. I firmly believe the school has and will continue to aggregate the resources required to meet these goals. This is a seminal time for the university and I am humbled to play a part.”
Dr. Kevin Yingling, pharmacy school dean, said, “We are most pleased to have Dr. Anderson join our program. He has spent more than 15 years in pharmacy education and more than 20 years in pharmacy practice. These experiences have equipped him to provide excellent leadership in the areas of student affairs, academic assessment and curriculum development.”
Yingling noted that Anderson also will serve as a member of the school’s Pharmacy Executive Council.
Anderson received his bachelor’s (1991) and his doctoral (1994) degrees in pharmacy, both from Ohio State University. In 1996, he completed a two-year, post-doctoral fellowship in drug information, also at OSU.
He was recognized with the Lourdes M. Cueller Award in 2004, the Collaborative Practice Award in 2002, and the Research and Education Foundation Research Award in 1998, all from the Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists.
Anderson is an active member of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, the Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists, and the Panhandle Society of Health-System Pharmacists.
