Jennifer Trofe-Clark, Pharm D, BCPS, FAST, FCCP
I have been a full member of AST since 2000 and became an inaugural elected Fellow of AST (FAST) in 2015.
I have served several roles within AST including: elected member at large for the Transplant Pharmacy COP (2012-2014), invited member of the Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation (VCA) Advisory Council (2013-2016), invited member of CEoT Planning Committee (2014), invited member of the ATC Planning Committee (2017-2020), and invited member of the planning committee for the 3rd version of the ASN/AST TNCC (April 2018). Through these roles, I served as a co-author on a national transplant pharmacist workforce survey published in AJT, and also served as primary author on an editorial in response to an article published in Transplant Research and Risk Management, which addressed the omission of a transplant pharmacist as a member of the multidisciplinary VCA team caring for these complex patients. This response was acknowledged as a work product of the AST’s Transplant Pharmacy COP in partnership with the Society’s VCA Advisory Council. I have also served numerous times as an ATC abstract reviewer, presenter, moderator, panelist and mentor for transplant pharmacy residents and fellows attending the meeting.
As an organization, AST has provided me with numerous opportunities for professional advancement, research funding via the AST/TIRN/Wood MacMillan Charitable Fund Allied Health Science Research Grant (2017), a large network of international new and respected colleagues to learn from and collaborate with, and professional mentorship spanning over the two decades of my career to date, for which I could not be more grateful. In 2018, I was honored to be chosen as recipient of the AST Clinician of Distinction Award. This was not only a reflection of my personal accomplishments and dedication to AST, but also highlighted the important value and contributions of a transplant pharmacist as a clinician, researcher and educator.
I play classical piano (solo and duets) in my spare time.
