Erin Santiago, Pharm.D., has been named as a new clinical assistant professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice within the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions at Creighton University. She was recently named the director of Pharmacy Services for CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center Bergan Mercy and Lasting Hope. Santiago will be a new member of the contributed service faculty within the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions.
Santiago, who earned her pharmacy degree from Creighton in 2012, has been with CHI Health Pharmacy Services for more than eight years. She began her career as a pharmacy intern and then as a staff pharmacist at Immanuel Medical Center. Most recently, she was interim pharmacy director for CUMC and Bergan Mercy.
Santiago’s new role will begin in conjunction with Creighton and CHI Health’s new academic medical center pharmacy program.
“This program will define how pharmacy services will be provided in the future throughout CHI Health. Santiago’s role will be instrumental in the education of Creighton students in this new academic model,” said Chris Bradberry, Pharm.D., dean of the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions.
