Dr. Albert Armstrong, dean of the School of Podiatric Medicine, has announced the appointment of Dr. Shanika Hill as associate dean of clinical education and assistant professor of podiatric medicine.
Hill was selected from a list of highly qualified candidates who surfaced through a national search, having received solid support from Armstrong, as well as other faculty members in the Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine.
Hill has a long history with Barry University, earning a master’s in biomedical sciences in 2004, as well as a doctorate of podiatric medicine in 2006. She completed a fellowship in podiatric clinical research at the University of Pennsylvania in 2008, followed by a podiatric medicine and surgery residency in Bryn Mawr, Pa., in 2010. Prior to her being appointed associate dean, Hill served for one year as the clinical education director in the School of Podiatric Medicine. During that time, she was honored as one of the Top 25 Black Educators of 2017 by Legacy Magazine.
In 2015, she was honored with an Outstanding Achievement Award in the volunteer community. Prior to beginning her academic career in podiatric medicine, Hill dedicated her time and efforts to providing podiatric care to the underserved and minority populations in South Florida. She continues to provide podiatric care throughout the community via the Jessie Trice Community Health Center.
Hill has been published in national peer-reviewed journals in the area of peripheral vascular disease, and is on staff at the North Shore Medical Center in Miami.
