Pharmacy Students Seek Leadership Opportunities Even During COVID-19 Pandemic

Although many pharmacy students’ academic experiences were changed by the COVID-19 pandemic, leadership opportunities were still available for students who took the time to find them.

Although many pharmacy students’ academic experiences were changed by the COVID-19 pandemic, leadership opportunities were still available for students who took the time to find them, according to Brooke Griffin, PharmD, BCACP, founder of 21st Century PharmD, in an interview with Pharmacy Times.

Griffin said some students were able to find virtual internships during the pandemic or took the time to hone leadership skills. She also encouraged students to recognize that they are leaders regardless of whether they have a title to put on their resume, because first- or second-year students look up to third-year students. Even first-year students can be leaders, Griffin said, because they have achieved others’ dreams of being accepted to pharmacy school.
