ACCP Member Spotlight: Alexandra Mihm

Alexandra Mihm, Pharm.D., BCPS

Alexandra Mihm, Pharm.D., BCPS, is an assistant professor at Wingate University School of Pharmacy. Mihm earned her Pharm.D. degree from Butler University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Indianapolis, Indiana, in 2016 and completed her 24-month pharmacotherapy residency at the University of Tennessee Medical Center and University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Pharmacy in Knoxville, Tennessee. After practicing as an internal medicine clinical pharmacist at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, for 4 years, she transitioned to her current embedded clinical faculty role, maintaining her same practice site.

Mihm serves as one of the five zone coordinators for the school of pharmacy, developing rotation sites, coordinating rotation schedules, and mentoring the students who move to the Winston-Salem area for their advanced pharmacy practice experience (APPE) rotations. In addition, she recently increased her responsibilities in the didactic curriculum while still precepting the required internal medicine APPE.

In her role as the institution’s pharmacy internship program research coordinator, Mihm works with first- through third-year pharmacy students from various colleges and schools of pharmacy in the state. She has played an integral role in developing and executing the program’s annual research boot camp series, which provides short didactic lectures on the research process and direct application of these principles to a group research project that is completed over one academic year.

When asked what led to her role in academia, Mihm responded:

My interest in academia developed through interactions with my professors and preceptors during pharmacy school. The time and effort they spent developing their students professionally and personally was apparent, and I knew I wanted to play an active role in preparing and inspiring the next generation of pharmacists to provide the best care possible to their patients.

Outside her professional pursuits, Mihm hopes to travel internationally with her family in the future. Cinque Terre in Italy, Australia and New Zealand, and a trip to see the Northern Lights currently rank highest on her list of travel destinations.
