Dr. Alla Fabrikant joined Husson University School of Pharmacy in August 2014 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice. She received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Duquesne University Mylan School of Pharmacy. After graduation, Dr. Fabrikant worked in a community pharmacy in Cleveland, Ohio. Although she enjoyed community pharmacy practice immensely, she wanted to broaden her scope in the pharmacy world and applied for residency. She went on to complete her 1st Post Graduate Year (PGY1) pharmacy practice residency and her 2nd year psychiatric pharmacy residency (PGY2) at the Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. During her residency training she completed a teaching certificate program and worked with Samford University McWhorter School of Pharmacy as a preceptor to APPE students and a guest lecturer in several courses. She is a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist (BCPS), a member of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy, and a member of the College of Neurologic and Psychiatric Pharmacists.
Dr. Fabrikant will initiate a clinical pharmacy practice in psychiatry at Acadia Hospital in Bangor, ME. Acadia is a psychiatric hospital that provides both inpatient and outpatient care for patients with psychiatric illnesses. Dr. Fabrikant will integrate Husson University School of Pharmacy students into the interdisciplinary treatment team and provide them with an opportunity on their advanced practice experiential rotations to become more comfortable caring for this unique patient population.
Her research interests include: transitions of care in psychiatric facilities, and treatment options for patients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She also has a strong interest in community service and community outreach and is a member of the National Alliance for Mental Illness.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her 2 dogs and cat, hiking and traveling.
