Personal profile

researchinterests

Dr. Popovich possesses a keen interest in the development of operational curricular models which represent a fundamental underpinning in pharmaceutical education toward the achievement of student performance outcome goals (e.g., logical thinking/decision-making abilities, reading and critical thinking abilities, scholarly concern for improvement and lifelong learning). The research experience and current interests of Dr. Popovich focus upon the development and evaluation of instructional methodologies to enhance pharmacy student, pharmacy educator, and pharmacist knowledge, learning and confidence in knowledge. At the UIC COP, he has conceptualized, implemented and evaluated a professional development seminar series as a mechanism to guide/advise doctor of pharmacy students during their on-campus, first three professional years. Further, he has a keen interest in faculty development to nurture junior faculty in the provision of teaching and scholarship through individual and group interaction. In Fall 2007, he conceptualized and implemented the Graduate Student-Post-Doc/Clinical Residents-Fellows Program in Academic Instruction at the COP to facilitate participant development in their teaching roles within the COP doctor of pharmacy program.
