The New Pharmacist: 46 Doses of Advice Letter

  1. 1. The  New  Pharmacist:  46  Doses  of  Advice     Book  Backgrounder  for  BUCOPHS  CE  Program  -­‐  2014                               consider  u+lizing  it  as  a  tool  for  conversa+ons  while  mentoring  young  pharmacists  entering  the   profession.    It  is  available  as  a  hardcopy  book  like  the  sample  you  received:     h=p://+nyurl.com/TheNewPharmacist,  as  well  as  via  Amazon  Kindle  ebook:   h=p://+nyurl.com/NewPharmacist.         Pharmacy  school  as  we  all  know  is  rigorous,  but  it  is  also  pre=y  prescrip+ve,  in  that  there  are  core   classes  every  student  must  complete  in  order  to  graduate  from  pharmacy  school.    Where  I  oFen   see  young  graduates  struggle  is  the  part  AFTER  pharmacy  school,  where  there  is  no  prescrip+on.     While  we  all  know  and  realize  as  more  mature  pharmacists  that  there  are  many  career  op+ons   within  our  profession,  younger  pharmacists  may  not  be  aware  of  the  range  of  op+ons.    Nor  may   they  be  aware  of  professional  stewardship,  and  how  to  become  a  leader  within  the  profession.     These  are  the  areas  I  a=empt  to  address  in  this  book.       If  this  book  helps  you  have  the  conversa+ons  about  “what  comes  aFer  pharmacy  school”  with  your   younger  counterparts  entering  the  profession,  this  book  will  have  fulfilled  its  des+ny,  and  I  would   be  grateful  and  honored  if  you  might  consider  it  as  such  an  aid  to  these  mentoring  conversa+ons   I’m  certain  you  will  have  in  the  future.       I  thank  you  in  advance  and  for  con+nuing  to  mentor  the  next  genera+on  of  stewards  of  the   profession  of  pharmacy.    Dickens  wrote  long  ago,  “It  was  the  best  of  +mes,  it  was  the  worst  of   +mes,”  and  it  couldn’t  be  more  true  today  than  at  any  point  in  history.  In  these  tumultuous  +mes,   we  need  to  look  out  for  each  other  as  a  profession,  educate  others  about  the  powerful  and   amazing  services  pharmacists  can  bring  to  the  healthcare  table,  and  keep  this  profession  moving   forward  in  a  posi+ve,  inspiring  way.       All  the  best,     Erin  Albert,  MBA,  PharmD,  JD,  Esquire   Director  –  Con+nuing  Educa+on  &  Preceptor  Development   Butler  University  College  of  Pharmacy  &  Health  Sciences         First  off,  THANK  YOU  for  a=ending  the  Butler  COPHS  11th  Annual   CE  Program  for  Pharmacists  June  5-­‐6,  2014!       As  the  director  of  this  event,  I  wanted  to  share  a  li=le  something  I   have  wri=en  recently  with  you,  in  hopes  that  you  in  turn  will  share   it  with  the  next  genera+on  of  up  and  coming  pharmacists  as  well.     Certainly,  there  are  par+cipants  at  the  annual  CE  program  who   have  been  prac+cing  within  the  profession  for  longer  than  I  have   personally  been  alive,  and  the  collec+ve  wisdom  of  our   par+cipants  far  surpasses  any  advice  I  could  give  on  my  own.       However,  I  was  hoping  that  by  sharing  a  copy  of  one  of  my  new   books,  The  New  Pharmacist:  46  Doses  of  Advice,  that  you  would
