Takako Komiyama. Komiyama graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy (UKCOP) in 1987 and revolutionized pharmacy education in Japan. This feat did not come easy; Komiyama's enthusiasm, tenacity, and perseverance were integral to her success.
The transition to online learning occurred in a matter of weeks, and UKCOP faculty had little time to make crucial decisions regarding nearly every facet of education. Examinations, courses, and laboratory work were converted to online formats, some for the first time. UKCOP, in particular, faced specific challenges as health practice sites developed policies and procedures to mitigate the presence of student learners in patient-care settings.
