Career Seminar Series
The Preparing for Your Career in Pharmacy Seminar Series was initiated by the WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2012 to introduce student pharmacists to thought leaders and entrepreneurs.
These speakers come to campus throughout the academic year and give insights on the opportunities available for future pharmacists to advance the pharmacy profession.
The seminars support the college’s mission to educate outstanding health care professionals and expose student pharmacists to current pharmacy leaders across the country who are driving innovation, advancing health care practice and improving people’s lives.
