Abstract

A dictionary definition of excellence is superiority; to be better or greater than the average or norm. When this excellence results in sustained superior performance rather than occasional solitary commendable acts, it becomes habitual. AACP schools/colleges of pharmacy, their academic leadership, faculty, staff and/or students are encouraged to strive for achievement of this excellence behavior. Excellence in teaching, scholarship and research are the criteria that collegiate units traditionally utilize to assess faculty performance for promotion and/or tenure. This process involves use of increasingly difficult criteria leading to sustained superior behaviors as judged by one’s peers. AACP offers its individual and institutional members a myriad of activities designed to develop, support and recognize behaviors where excellence has become a habit rather than as a specific act.
