Preceptor SIG New Practitioner Spotlight: Erica Tolle, PharmD 

Each month, the Preceptor SIG will highlight the activities and accomplishments of a New Practitioner member. This month’s spotlight is on Dr. Erica Tolle, PharmD. 

Dr. Erica Tolle is currently an Academic Fellow at the University of Cincinnati. In this position, Dr. Tolle practices at the Cincinnati Health Department in an appointment based model providing disease state education and clinical services. Despite being a learner herself, Dr. Tolle precepts APPE and PGY-1 community residents, teaches PharmD students and residents at the University of Cincinnati College of Pharmacy, manages the college’s community residency, and participates in research.

Dr. Tolle’s reason for serving as a preceptor is to “pay it forward.” Dr. Tolle states that,”precepting is a way to give back to the profession, to continuously challenge yourself to remain engaged and to learn from students and residents both clinically and academically.”

“One of the most rewarding parts of my current fellowship position is assisting with the college’s residency program. The opportunity to serve as a mentor and develop a professional and personal relationship with residents is an involvement that I hope to continue throughout my career!”

Aside from precepting, Dr. Tolle serves within APhA as a Peer-Reviewer for JAPhA, sits on the New Practitioner Network Transitions Editorial Advisory Board, and published A survey of pharmacists’ preparedness for provider status implementation in JAPhA’s residents edition. Dr. Tolle is also a member of the Ohio Pharmacists’ Association (OPA) Legal & Regulatory Affairs committee.
