Veronica S. L. Young, PharmD, MPH

Clinical Associate Professor and Director of Interprofessional Education and Community Engagement

College of Pharmacy

UT Austin

I believe it is a privilege to be a teacher and mentor, entrusted with the responsibility of nurturing the next generations of learners, to impart knowledge and skills, encourage a sense of curiosity, motivate life-long learning, and inspire excellence.

As a pharmacist and teacher, I aspire to instill in my students not only the capability to practice pharmacy competently and ethically, but to be compassionate and civic-minded, and to recognize their potential to serve as change agents in a rapidly transforming healthcare environment. Through active learning and mentored community engagement, I strive to help students build skills essential to their personal and professional growth: higher-order thinking, effective communication and collaborative teamwork.
