OSU's College of Pharmacy and College of Business designed the course, Management & HR Skills for Pharmacists, and worked with OSU Professional and Noncredit Education to create the web-based learning environment.

Once registered, participants can access the course 24/7. The environment utilizes an interactive learning design, featuring multimedia storytelling to help prepare pharmacy participants for future managerial and human resources tasks. Course content is updated regularly to reflect the most recent research and regulations.

"Today's pharmacist works in a fast-paced and outcomes-oriented health care environment," says Paige Clark, Director of Alumni Relations and Professional Development for the OSU College of Pharmacy.  "They need business and leadership skills to navigate the challenges of their increasingly complex workplace. Pharmacies that employ graduates of this course will profit from improved critical management skills, optimized teamwork, and decreased risk and cost of turnover."

The new offering provides participants with an opportunity to satisfy pharmaceutical continuing education requirements. Enrollees can earn 1.8 continuing education units upon completion of the 18-hour course.

The course teaches pharmacy participants how to:

  1. Employ leadership, staffing and decision-making skills to generate a high-performance working environment.
  2. Apply skills learned to enhance the development and productivity of pharmacy team members through coaching, motivation and feedback.
  3. Manage the pharmacy and pharmacy team in accordance with the highest standards and in compliance with employment law.

The course facilitator is taught Michele Swift, Ph.D., assistant professor in management at OSU. Swift brings her insights from 15 years of human resources experience to the course.

This program has been planned and implemented in accordance with the policies of the Accreditation Council on Pharmaceutical Education through the sponsorship of the OSU College of Pharmacy.  The OSU College of Pharmacy is approved by the Accreditation Council on Pharmaceutical Education as a provider of continuing pharmaceutical education.
