Chapman University Pharmacy Professor Jeff Goad Honored as ASHP Fellow

Jeffery A. Goad, PharmD, MPH, professor of pharmacy practice and associate dean of Academic Affairs at Chapman University School of Pharmacy, has been named a Fellow of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). 

Goad is among the 28 pharmacists honored with the title “Fellow” (FASHP) for 2024, in recognition of their excellence and significant contributions to the field of pharmacy practice.

The 2024 Fellows will be officially honored during a ceremony on June 11, 2024, at the ASHP Pharmacy Futures meeting in Portland, Oregon. Jeff Goad’s commitment to advancing pharmacy practice, his active involvement in ASHP, and his dedication to educating future practitioners highlight his mentorship in shaping the future of pharmacy. 

Goad has maintained an active practice in travel medicine and immunization services for over 25 years. He created the first national Travel Health certificate program, training more than 10,000 pharmacists. He coordinates and teaches courses in travel medicine, immunizations, and parasitology. Goad’s research program focuses on the social and behavioral aspects of consumer and healthcare professional’s decision-making processes and outcomes related primarily to immunizations and travel medicine. “Think about how well we’ve done getting COVID-19 vaccine awareness into everyone’s lives. If we could bring that same energy in common messaging to other vaccines, we could prevent a tremendous amount of illness, hospitalization and death,” said Goad.

“We are incredibly proud of Dr. Goad’s recognition as an ASHP Fellow, said Ren Ostrom, dean of Chapman University School of Pharmacy. “This honor truly shows his career accomplishments and exemplifies the standard of excellence and leadership he brings to our university and the broader pharmacy profession.”

Since the ASHP Practitioner Recognition Program’s inception in 1988, only 1,073 pharmacists have received this honor. 

Chapman’s School of Pharmacy, based at Chapman’s Rinker Campus in the health-care hub of Irvine, was third in the state in phase 1 residency match results and recently partnered with City of Hope Orange County for Pharm.D. graduates. CUSP faculty received more than $3 million in research funding last year for research on asthma, HIV and antibiotics. Almost 90% of CUSP alumni passed the national board exam on their first try. 

Dr. Goad’s expertise for interview requests: Travel Medicine; Vaccines or Immunizations; Public Health; Epidemiology.
