Michael A. Crouch has been named dean of Samford University’s McWhorter School of Pharmacy effective July 1. Crouch, an accomplished educator, clinician and researcher, currently serves as executive associate dean and professor at East Tennessee State University’s Gatton College of Pharmacy, Johnson City.
The selection follows a national search to replace Charlie Sands III who resigned in May 2013 to pursue medical missions opportunities. Michael D. Hogue has served as interim dean since Sands’ resignation, and he will return to his role as chair of the Department of Pharmacy Practice.
Crouch joined the Gatton College of Pharmacy in 2010 as professor and associate dean for professional education and academic affairs. He accepted his current leadership position in 2012.
He is a board-certified pharmacotherapy specialist who also holds added qualifications in cardiology.
