Osterhaus receives UI pharmacy education honor
IOWA CITY, Iowa - Matt Osterhaus, owner of Osterhaus Pharmacy in
Maquoketa, was named Preceptor of the Year by the University of Iowa College
Osterhaus, a 1980 graduate of the college, was selected for his outstanding
service to pharmacy education and the profession of pharmacy. He is one
of several Iowa pharmacists who offer UI students hands-on experience in
community settings through the college's clerkship programs. Clerkships
are a valuable part of pharmacy education at the UI, particularly as pharmacists
spend more time counseling patients about their medication and health.
Osterhaus was chosen for the honor based on feedback from students,
faculty members and clerkship coordinators. He is a member of the Iowa
Board of Pharmacy and the UI College of Pharmacy Alumni Board.
