Federico Facciolo is a first-year PhD student in Social and Administrative Pharmacy at the University of Minnesota.

Prior to coming to Minnesota, he earned a Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (Social and Administrative Pharmacy emphasis) at Creighton University. At Creighton, he was the primary investigator of a mixed methods study on the provision of enhanced patient-centered services across all independent community pharmacies in Nebraska. His research has been presented at several regional and national professional conferences including the American Pharmacists Association Annual Meeting and the Academy Health Annual Research Meeting. As a Creighton graduate student, he held teaching assistantship appointments in PharmD courses (e.g. Pharmacy Practice Management), volunteered as a mentor and guest lecturer in graduate courses (e.g. Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research), and served on the Graduate Student Government and Board of Representative of the Creighton Student Union.

Prior to Creighton, Federico graduated with a Post-graduate Master in Pharmaceutical Technology and Regulatory Affairs from the University of Pavia, Italy while interning in the regulatory affairs division of a global pharmaceutical company. He previously obtained his license to practice the profession of pharmacist in Italy after graduating with a Pharmacy Degree from the University of Pavia, Italy. As a pharmacy student in Italy, he held a pharmacist internship in an independent community pharmacy. In addition to his documented U.S. graduate training and research in social and administrative pharmacy, his knowledge of foreign pharmacy practice and education has helped him identify differences and similarities in the pharmacy profession, PharmD programs, and academia across the United States and other countries.

Federico’s career goal is joining academic faculty, conducting research, teaching, and mentoring students, to improve structures, objectives, and outcomes of professional and graduate pharmacy programs and universities.
