A Free Conference For Pharmacists Who Want to Change Jobs

The following is an announcement from my friend Alex Barker. After reading about it, this seemed to me TOO GOOD not to share with my blog readers. So here is the information. I highly recommend looking into this, even if you are relatively happy with your career. Great exposure to what your fellow-pharmacists are doing.


Over 50% of community pharmacists wish to quit their jobs. APhA reported Pharmacists from all practice areas are experiencing more stress, difficulty seeking a new job, and lower satisfaction.

There are nearly 300,000 pharmacists in the USA alone. According to the research above, there are over 100,000 unhappy pharmacists.

This should not be true, but it was true for me.

I once had a miserable pharmacy job. I dealt with bullies, monotonous work, and office politics. I felt like I made a mistake choosing pharmacy as a career. I felt like I wasn’t living to my full potential. I thought I wasted seven years of my life to become a boring pharmacist.

Fast forward a few years, and interviewing dozens of pharmacists, I changed my story. Now, I’m happy with what I do, and want to invite you to a conference that will change your career.

This Summit Announcement is a conference about stories. It is about pharmacists who love what they do and sharing how other pharmacists can do what they do.

The Happy PharmD Summit – The First Non-Traditional Pharmacy Career Conference.

The Summit is free to attend. You can view each session a for a few hours after it appears live. It was developed to help frustrated pharmacists find a new and inspiring career, one based on your strengths and talents rather than your capabilities to memorize or perform monotonous tasks.
