Clayton English, Pharm.D., BCPP, an Assistant Professor at the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences’ Colchester Campus, has been named the 2013 Vermont Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists (VtSHP) Pharmacist of the Year.

The award is given annually to a pharmacist who demonstrates extraordinary dedication to the profession of pharmacy, contributes to pharmacy programs, cooperates with the entire health care team, and furthers the profession of pharmacy through community service.

“I’m honored to receive this award, which would not be possible without the support of the team of professionals at Fletcher Allen Health Care and, of course, the faculty and students at Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences,” said Dr. English. “I’m proud to be associated with two institutions that consistently make patient care the top priority.”

“Dr. English received remarkable praise as well as letters of support, from both pharmacy and physician colleagues. It was clear from these letters that he is an exceptional clinician that has had a very positive impact on his students, pharmacy and physician colleagues, and patients,” said Joseph Aloi, Pharm.D., BCPS, President of the Vermont Society of Health-System Pharmacists.

Dr. English teaches (or co-teaches) the following classes at the College:

  • Neurology/Psychology
  • Pharmacy Skills Lab V
  • Drugs of Abuse 
  • Complementary Alternative Medicine

He also serves as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Vermont Medical (UVM) School - Dept. of Psychiatry and the UVM School of Nursing.
