Center for Leading Healthcare Change

Legacy of Leadership

Since its founding in 1892, the College of Pharmacy has been a national leader in education, practice and policy. Our alumni are health care leaders: from industry and association leaders, to deans and practitioners leading in their profession and community.

Focusing on Leadership Development

Pharmacists are responding to consumers’ and patients’ needs for assistance in managing their medication use. This is particularly critical with the increasingly complex medication therapies that are being used. Even though pharmacists are being integrated into multidisciplinary provider teams, they will continue their responsibility for product distribution. These health care market changes will require pharmacists’ leadership at all levels of health care systems and government.
