Enhancing Your Succes

By Sara White posted 06-27-2011 10:04


What does it take to be successful? As pharmacists we are bright, having gotten through a rigorous school of pharmacy curriculum and passed our licensing board, however the skills to be successful are not often taught in school because of time limitations given all the science we need to know. Having trained over 100 pharmacy residents in my career I have assisted them to develop success skills. Since I am retired, I have had the time to write and publish much of this material as a Success Skills series in AJHP beginning in 2007.  You can locate them by doing an author search on the on-line AJHP or going to the ASHP Store section of the ASHP website and on the Pharmacy Leadership Field Guide page under bonus material you will find PDFs posted. At the end of each chapter in this book is a bar code that will also get you to them.
