We are deeply saddened to report that our friend and colleague Tim Fuller passed away unexpectedly this week. Tim graduated from the UW School of Pharmacy in 1969 and went on to complete a residency and MSc degree in Hospital Pharmacy at Ohio State University in 1974. He also completed two residencies at the US Public Health Hospital in San Francisco and Ohio State University Hospital. Tim served as Director of Pharmacy at Seattle Children’s Hospital from 1981 to 1991 and as a Pharmacist Consultant to the Washington state Board of Pharmacy from 1992 until he retired in June 2014.
Tim enjoyed a long and distinguished career in the pharmacy community. Founder of Timothy S. Fuller & Associates, Inc., Consulting, he is recognized as the Father of Pharmacist Collaborative Drug Therapy for his extensive and continued research, advocacy, and publication on the subject. He is a Past President of the Washington Society of Hospital Pharmacists, a Fellow of the American Society of Health System Pharmacists, and the Washington State Pharmacists Association Pharmacist of the Year in 1997.
Tim served the School of Pharmacy community as a Preceptor and Adjunct Professor for 31 years. In 2018, Tim was awarded the UW Pharmacy Alumni Association Distinguished Alumni award for his generous and illustrious service to the School. Read more about Tim’s career and legacy here.
Tim’s UW graduating class (’69) was the first class in the history of the University of Washington to endow a scholarship fund in honor of their class. Should you want to make a donation in Tim’s memory, you can support the Class of 1969 fund here.
On behalf of the UW School of Pharmacy, we extend our heartfelt condolences to Tim’s wife Karli and the entire Fuller family. Our thoughts are with them during this very difficult time. Details on funeral arrangements will be shared as they’re made available.
