Janice L. Stumpf
Regents' Proceedings

Janice L. Stumpf, Pharm.D., clinical associate professor of pharmacy in the College of Pharmacy and clinical pharmacist in the UMH Pharmacy Services, retired from active faculty status on December 31, 2019.

Professor Stumpf received her associate in arts degree in chemistry from the Southwestern College in Chula Vista, California in 1981 and her doctor of pharmacy degree from the University of California, San Francisco in 1986. She went on to complete a one-year residency in clinical pharmacy at the University of Michigan Hospitals, during which time she was appointed as an adjunct clinical instructor in the University of Michigan College of Pharmacy. In 1986, she accepted a position at the University of Michigan Medical Center as a clinical pharmacist specializing in adult internal medicine and continued as a clinical instructor in the College of Pharmacy. She was promoted to clinical assistant professor in 1988, and clinical associate professor in 2000. At the medical center, she transitioned to the Drug Information Service and Medication Use Policy Center in 1994, where she was asked to serve as the acting co-director until 1995.

Professor Stumpf was a nationally recognized leader and outstanding clinician-educator, who played an influential role in shaping medication use policy and improving patient care at Michigan Medicine. She had many accomplishments in this role, including the publication of the highly regarded Michigan Drug Letter and Pharmacy Newsletter and the hospital's formulary. In addition to providing in-service education for other health care practitioners, she identified and initiated numerous projects to improve patient care and the cost-effectiveness of therapy. Professor Stumpf's national service, as well as her service to the College of Pharmacy and Michigan Medicine, had a positive impact on patient care and student learning. She was a passionate teacher, both in the classroom and in the clinical practice setting, having mentored numerous pharmacy students, residents, and interns. She made significant contributions to a major revision of the pharmacy curriculum as a member of the college's Curriculum Review Committee (2002-11). Professor Stumpf's scholarship involved projects that addressed real patient and drug therapy problems. She co-authored an article that was recognized by the American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy as one of the top 25 most accessed articles in 2018.

The Regents now salute this distinguished faculty member by naming Janice L. Stumpf, clinical associate professor emerita of pharmacy.
