Critical business skills for career advancementCreated by:
During my 4 years of Pharmacy school I wasn't really exposed to the business aspects of Pharmacy except for one brief module which I've since forgotten.
After 6 years of working, I've come to realise that while professional skills and knowledge are key differentiators, I also lack business acumen. I believe there are many critical business skills that are lacking such as marketing skills, leadership skills, business development, negotiation skills and more. Traditional pharmacist roles are becoming less available and most times the career pathway will stagnate over time.
What are some skills that you think can benefit a pharmacist or healthcare professional in the current career climate?
