The roles of pre-doctoral and post-doctoral experiences in pharmacist career development in the US and The roles of management and leadership in pharmacist practice development

DRA lectures held by Dr David P Zgarrick, Professor, Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

The roles of pre-doctoral and post-doctoral experiences in pharmacist career development in the US
Preparing pharmacy students to make the successful transition from university to practice as a pharmacist and a career path in the profession requires a combination of didactic courses, laboratory simulations, and practical experiences. The preparation of pharmacists for various career paths in pharmacy has seen changes in the United States over the past decade, particularly in the role of pre-doctoral and post-doctoral experiences. This talk will help you learn more about the role of experience in pharmacist career development, focusing on a unique pre-doctoral model used at Northeastern University (co-operative education) as well as the roles that post-doctoral residencies and fellowships are now increasingly being used to prepare pharmacists for advanced practice opportunities.

The roles of management and leadership in pharmacist practice development
Pharmacy education and practice has becoming increasingly clinical in nature, with the focus of the pharmacist shifting primarily from preparing and dispensing drug products to taking responsibility for the drug-related outcomes of patients, providers and populations. Regardless of the focus of practice, pharmacists must apply management skills and leadership principles if they are to make the best use of their resources and affect change in their environments and profession. This talk will help you learn more about how management skills and leadership principles are integrated into the curricula and post-graduate training of pharmacists at schools and colleges of pharmacy in the US, and well has how pharmacists have utilized their management and leadership training to develop new pharmacy practice models.

The lectures are arranged on behalf of the graduate programme in pharmaceutical sciences, Drug Research Academy, by Lotte Stig Nørgaard, Department of Pharmacy, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen.

The arrangement is free of charge and open for attendance by all interested parties. It is not necessary to pre-register.
