Continuing Healthcare Education
Dr. Alan P. Agins received a Masters in Pharmacology & Toxicology and a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Rhode Island. He has held faculty appointments at Brown University Medical School, Northeastern University School of Pharmacy and University of Virginia School of Nursing. During his tenure at Brown, Dr. Agins was the recipient of the Dean's Teaching Excellence Award for five consecutive years. Over the past twenty-two years, Dr. Agins has lectured nationally on all topics of pharmacology to more than 88,000 advanced practice clinicians and allied healthcare professionals. He has authored three books, co-authored textbook chapters and has served as primary reviewer for various journals, CE monographs, textbooks and newsletters, and has presented more than 300 live CE webinars to pharmacists for AMN Healthcare over the past 9 years. Dr. Agins recently developed and launched a continuing education website, Pharmacology One-on-One (pharm1on1.com) featuring engaging studio-produced, high def streaming videos on various pharmacology topics.
The “take-home-message” that Dr. Agins attempts to instill is to adopt a profound respect for, but also cautious attitude about drugs - what they can do…and what their limitations are. After many years “on the road” and every conceivable pharmacology question from his audiences, Dr. Agins maintains a great sense of humor and wit, as well as a unique talent for breathing life into dry or difficult subject matter. His goal is to make this course memorable, informative and enjoyable for everyone who attends.
