Leading Change Experience (Past Initiatives)

The University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy offered its first leadership course in 2007. At that time, we also began the development of the Leadership Emphasis Area (LEA). The LEA is a coordinated 18 credit series of didactic, experiential and self-directed coursework aimed at preparing pharmacy students to lead change.

Approximately 10% of U of M pharmacy students graduate having completed the Leadership Emphasis Area.
