College of Pharmacy students who want to develop business acumen and leadership skills can enroll in the Healthcare Business Leadership Program (HBL). The leadership program teaches students how to understand and make effective business decisions regarding teamwork, finance, conflict management, entrepreneurship, and how to leverage healthcare data to improve outcomes and decision making.

The program requires students to attend five out of six Saturday modules over a 12-month period. Modules topics for 2021 included Strategic Hiring, Finance for Clinicians, and High-Performance Leadership, to name a few. 

HBL is proving to be extremely valuable to pharmacy students. Third-year Doctor of Pharmacy candidate Kelsey Kiwala said she "learned strategies to navigate conflict -- and how to approach that based on the relationships and management style that you have."

35 students recently completed the program and participated in a graduation ceremony at the College of Pharmacy. Congrats to the following students on their accomplishment!
