Visiting Leaders Program
Supported by the David A. Zilz Leaders for the Future Fund and the Sara J. White Leadership Fund
What is the Visiting Leaders Program?
This program was created specifically to give pharmacy residents a valuable opportunity for leadership skill building through personal interactions with a prominent health-system leader. The program brings a distinguished health-system pharmacy leader to the residents’ institution for up to a 2-day period to engage with the residents and explore leadership topics matching their specific leadership interests. Residents will be challenged to lead, to develop a career plan and to learn how to be successful in today’s complex pharmacy and healthcare environment.
The Visiting Leaders Program supports the travel and expenses of the visiting leader only. The host institution is responsible for any local expenses associated with the visit (for example, lunch and/or dinner for residents). We highly encourage host institutions to invite other residents from the area to attend a portion of the program.
