Passing the Torch: Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders

Description

As experienced pharmacy leaders retire or transition to different roles, the need to prepare the next generation of leaders is becoming critical to help ensure the future success of federal pharmacy. This session begins with a brief introductory didactic section that provides an overview of the different workforce generations, as well as demonstrating the impending need to prepare future Federal Pharmacy leaders.  It then transitions into a panel discussion format where the moderator will direct questions to the panelists, designed to elicit sharing of experiences, as well as specific examples and implementation strategies that may be applied in preparing future pharmacy leaders. An audience-driven question and answer period will be immediately followed by final impressions from the panelist and moderator.
