Dawn Kashelle Lockman, Pharm.D., M.A.
My life-long career goal is to minimize suffering by training healthcare providers in interdisciplinary approaches to provide
patient-centered, integrated palliative care across the trajectory of chronic illness.

A native of South Carolina, I earned a Bachelor of Science in biology at the College of Charleston. I then spent a decade doing bench science at MUSC, UNC, and the NIH as a molecular biologist before finding my way to pharmacy.


I earned a Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Maryland, where I discovered my passion for palliative care and serving geriatric patients. I completed a PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice residency at the University of Maryland, where my practice site was at University of Maryland Medical Center. I completed a PGY-2 residency in Pain Management and Palliative Care and a fellowship in Instructional Design at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, and I earned a Master of Arts in Instructional Systems Development from University of Maryland Baltimore County in May 2016. I am currently a Clinical Assistant Professor in Hospice & Palliative Medicine at University of Iowa College of Pharmacy and a Clinical Pharmacy Specialist on the Palliative Care team at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.


My professional passions continue to include palliative care, IPE, and instructional design. Outside of pharmacy, I dabble in gardening, cooking, music, and spend as much time as possible biking. I hope to one day call myself a knitter and a sailor. I am continually appreciative of my family, friends, and mentors for their inspiration and continued support of my professional and personal development.
