Pharmacy Unscripted: The Evolution of Pharmacist Education and Non-Clinical Careers
If you’re a pharmacist you are probably going to have thoughts about today’s episode. I’m joined by pharmacist and Director of Pharmacy at Minnesota Oncology, Kirollos Hanna Pharm.D. I first met Kirollos at the end of 2020 in the context of an end-of-year report on oncology trends for the Association of Community Cancer Centers, that included a series of focus groups with ACCC members. I was deeply impressed by Kirollos’s humanity, clarity, and pragmatism, and if you don’t know Kirollos, I think you will be too.
In this episode, we talk about the challenges and opportunities for pharmacists transitioning from clinical to non-clinical roles and explore the different roles pharmacists can take on in non-clinical settings, such as creating educational content or working in the pharmaceutical industry.
Kirollos highlights the unique value that pharmacists bring to education and the importance of foundational knowledge in specialized areas like oncology pharmacy. But we also talk about the challenges pharmacists face every day and the evolving nature of the pharmacy field.
Join us as we delve into the world of pharmacy and explore the possibilities for pharmacists as educators and their unique contribution as educators to continuing education in the health professions.
