Clinical Associate Professor
Dr. Charles “CK” Babcock received his Pharm.D. from West Virginia University (WVU) in Morgantown, WV and completed a community pharmacy residency with Fruth Pharmacy which is headquartered in Point Pleasant, WV the following year. Dr. Babcock’s services were retained as he became the Director of Clinical Services for Fruth Pharmacy. Over several years, CK was involved in developing many clinical programs (including diabetes education and immunization clinics), organizing collaborations with industry, operations, procuring products, recruitment and retention programs, precepting students, inventory management, dispensing, operating as a pharmacist-in-charge, and as Director of Pharmacy.
He found that heart is in education, and took a shared distance faculty position with Fruth Pharmacy and WVU School of Pharmacy in Charleston, WV. While there, he attained both Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) and Board Certified Ambulatory Care Pharmacist (BCACP) certification. He also became a trainer for APhA’s Diabetes, Immunization, and Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Programs.
In July of 2015, Dr. Babcock was blessed by the opportunity to be more directly involved with students in pharmacy education at Marshall University. He brings with him a great love of West Virginia and passion to help every student attain their full potential and improve the care provided by pharmacists in West Virginia and the surrounding area.
