Taking the Leap-clinician on a mission

In our daily discussions with pharmacists we usually talk to them about where they see themselves in the next couple of years. I usually ask, what is your plan for the next five years? Do you see yourself as purely a staff pharmacist, would you like to progress to the clinical side and be more involved in patient care, do you see yourself as a pharmacy manager or Director Of Pharmacy one day. It is important to know these things about candidates because not every job has a clear path for advancement especially in pharmacy, if there is no clear path then perhaps the job we were looking at for them is not the right one at all. But if there is a path then there a few ways to get on the that track. It involves familiarizing yourself with the greater aspects of hospital operations, human resources, patient care and financial management. It also involves taking a initiative on your part to show your boss and others that you are ready to lead. The more you educate yourself on these certain aspects of health care and show you are willing to take on new challenges then you will find yourself on the upward ladder towards your goal.

  1. Although, I agree with your discussion. I still feel that as professionals instead of focusing on the 'business' aspect of healthcare, we should direct our efforts in making our clinical skills more sound. Below is a nice website, where you can start.
    1. Central searchable repository of a pharmacists 'curb-side' notes.
    2. Transition between hospital and retail settings, your notes can transition with you, not your job.
    3. For access from anywhere, when I do not have direct access to my references/websites.

  2. I'm also agree with your discussion. I came across your blog and the topics really held my interest. I always was fascinated by space exploration.. Such a nice post. Keep up the good work guys!

  5. Thank you for posting this! I found it very helpful. I've been looking for a good pharmacy to go to, but dont know what to look for. I hear the Park Ridge pharmacy is a good place to go, but was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions that I can look at. Any insight would be great!

  6. Thank you for sharing this information on pharmacies. I have been to many great pharmacies in Calgary that are just like this. I'm so grateful for all the great pharmacists in the world today.
