Background: Alan earned his B.S. degree (1969) in pharmacy, and M.S. (1976) and Ph.D. (1978) degrees in continuing education in pharmacy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition, he is licensed as a pharmacist in Wisconsin with experience as a pharmacy practitioner in both community and hospital settings, including a three-year tour of duty as a pharmacist in the U.S. Public Health Service. He joined the U.W.-Madison Pharmacy faculty in 1973 as an instructor in pharmaceutical dispensing and concurrently completed his graduate degrees. In 1979 he began work with Extension Services in Pharmacy at the U.W. School of Pharmacy. He has served as Chair of Extension Services in Pharmacy since 1996.  His current responsibilities include all phases associated with the planning, development, marketing, administration and evaluation of post-graduate continuing professional education/professional development programs at the state, national, and international level for pharmacists as well as personnel within the pharmaceutical industry. Dr. Hanson also has the distinction of serving as the Melvini H. Weinswig Distinguished Professor.

Dr. Hanson is also involved in research as it relates to continuing education, lifelong learning and continuing professional development in pharmacy. His research focuses on methods by which providers of continuing education may better serve as "facilitators" of learning. A major component of this includes the exploration of means by which pharmacists' extent of participation in lifelong learning/continuing professional development may be predicted based on specific learning characteristics; armed with this information, the CE provider should be able to enhance the design of programs to better meet the needs of prospective learners. An additional research component related to the facilitation of lifelong learning focuses on the responsibility/role of schools of pharmacy to prepare pharmacy students to become lifelong learners and adopt the concepts of continuing professional development. The research efforts of Dr. Hanson (and his colleague Dr. De Muth) were recognized by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy which presented them with the Rufus Lyman Award for the best manuscript published in the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education during the 1992 calendar year. Dr. Hanson is active in numerous professional organizations in Wisconsin, the U.S., and internationally. He was a recipient in 1991 of the prestigious "Award of Merit" presented by the Section of Continuing Professional Education of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy.
