While retail is clearly a place that pharmacists are reducing their numbers, where are the opportunities for pharmacists trained in clinical and non-clinical work? The one place you can look is the BLS employment matrix for pharmacists, however, one place the BLS does NOT project significant pharmacist increase is physician's offices. Need help wit…
 
I wanted to talk a little bit about public health and getting that second degree. I think people misinterpret that second degree is just a number of classes that kind of overlap and just kind of an additional credential, but I've got Rachel Whitesitt on who was a P4 at the University of Iowa and she's actually using it as an expansion of whom she c…

Do you feel underappreciated? It's a lot more than hurt feelings and there's a lot you can do about it. Often, humility gets in the way of making sure you get the recommendation at the level that you should. There is a professional way to make sure your direct supervisor knows how hard you are working and what work you are doing. https://www.reside…

The job market ain't pretty, but it's clear that people who have jobs tend to have a much easier time getting another job. Those that wait for the perfect position end up waiting a lot longer.

Many people look at location as the #1 residency differentiator, but knowing if you will be a lone resident versus a part of a team is a much different experience.

A residency project can take up a ton of your time if you let it, but knowing what you want to do, what looks good on a poster, and having a storyboard of the objectives, methods, results, and conclusions can make it a lot more fun.

It is as good an indicator of what RPDs think of your college as anything else. You can find it here: https://www.residencyhelp.com/matchbyschool…
 
I try to answer the question for myself if I should travel or not, I give my reasons and believe that you have to 1) write it down and 2) talk about what you wrote with others, your safety is the most important thing above all. Here is the CDC's recommendation page setup by type of travel https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/faqs.htm…
