Starting as a New Practitioner

The New Practitioners Forum is an exciting and active home for graduates transitioning into the “real world” of pharmacy practice.  The Forum offers new practitioners with practical career development tools and programs as well as provides numerous opportunities for professional growth.

Job Preparation 
A great candidate can go unnoticed if not presented in a positive manner.  Preparing successfully for interviews and job applications allows you to acquire the positions you desire throughout your career.

It’s time to design your next pharmacy research project, but where do you begin? Whether you are new to research or are experienced with oversight of student/resident research, these resources will assist you from design, completion, and sharing of your research results.

Building professional connections is a key factor of success. Networking allows you to develop professional relationships to share expertise, gain new ideas, and grow as a new practitioner.

Career Development
Embarking on the next journey in your career can be stressful. We’ve targeted major transitional stages of your career in order to provide you with the adequate resources for your personal and professional needs.

Mentoring and Preceptor Development 
As a new practitioner, you will be tasked with mentoring and precepting pharmacy learners along their path to professionalism.
