When I heard about this program it seemed like the most logical one to recommend to one of my "up and comers". I could not have been more right. After his completion of the degree and the numerous mentorship sessions we had discussing course material, it seems like it is perfect for developing leaders in pharmacy. I would recommend it to anyone.
