SPOKANE, Wash. – Steve Singer spoke to student pharmacists on October 6 about his career path and the many job opportunities in the field of pharmacy. His presentation was part of the Preparing for Your Career in Pharmacy seminar series coordinated by the Washington State University College of Pharmacy.
“You are in control of your career,” said Singer.
He advised students to participate in pharmacy organizations to broaden their network and gain exposure to different career options.
There are many things you can do with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree outside the traditional dispensing role; find what you are passionate about and pursue it, said Singer.
The purpose of this seminar series is to expose student pharmacists to career opportunities and leaders within those fields as part of the college’s mission to develop outstanding health care professionals.
Singer is the manager of Bellegrove Pharmacy in Bellevue Washington. He has been active in the Washington State Pharmacy Association for 20 years and is currently the secretary treasurer.
The seminars are funded through the College of Pharmacy Dean’s Fund for Excellence and our community partner, the Spokane Teachers Credit Union.
