Pharmacy Administration and Leadership Residents’ Collaborative

The Pharmacy Administration and Leadership Residents’ Collaborative (PALRC) is designed to serve as a home within ASHP for unique offerings for the Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) resident community (including related programs such as community-based or specialty pharmacy administration and leadership). PALRC builds on existing ASHP opportunities for the HSPAL community and provides enhanced services, member resource development, and engagements with the Pharmacy Executive Leadership Alliance (PELA)®, the Section of Pharmacy Practice Leaders, the ASHP Foundation, and other ASHP resources that further elevate ASHP’s support for the nation’s hospitals and health-system leaders of tomorrow.

To enhance and expand opportunities for HSPAL residents as future chief pharmacy officers and executives, pharmacy managers, and directors, the PALRC will establish an advisory committee of HSPAL residents and three workgroups that focus on:

  • Providing a professional community within ASHP for HSPAL residents as they transition into pharmacy practice leadership.
  • Developing and promoting contributions to the growth of the pharmacy profession through research and quality improvement.
  • Promoting leadership and engagement opportunities for HSPAL residents, including opportunities with PELA and ASHP’s Section of Pharmacy Practice Leaders that support early career development.
