David A Mott, PhD, FAPhA, RPh

Division Chair
Professor

 

 

 


Dr. Mott has two primary areas of research: the pharmacy labor market and pharmacist service development and impacts. His research of the pharmacist labor market has investigated trends in the supply and demand of pharmacists, factors associated with the number of hours worked by pharmacists, and trends in turnover rates, and reasons pharmacists leave jobs. In 2000, 2004, 2009, and 2013 he worked on the National Pharmacist Workforce Survey. His research looking at pharmacist service development and impacts focuses on the pharmacists role in preventing falls among older adults. Currently he is studying trends in pharmacist demand in Wisconsin pharmacies, benchmarking the capacity of the pharmacist workforce, and the role of pharmacists in preventing falls among older adults in rural areas of Wisconsin.

David received his BS (1988) in pharmacy, and his MS (1992) and PhD (1995) in pharmacy administration, all from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His minor fields of study for his PhD degree were economics and public policy analysis. Dr. Mott practiced pharmacy in community settings. Before joining the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy faculty in 1998, Dr. Mott was on the faculty at the Ohio State University College of Pharmacy. He was named Teacher of the Year in 1999, 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2006 by first year doctor of pharmacy students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has published widely in pharmacy journals and outside of pharmacy. He currently teaches courses in the health care system, pharmacy practice law and regulation, and advanced research methods.
