About

The College has partnered with the Tippie College of Business to offer a unique opportunity called Healthcare Business Leadership Program (HBL). The intent of this program is to provide enhanced business skills and critical thinking so participants can actively contribute and make decisions that will positively influence personal, professional, and organizational success in pharmacy careers.

College of Pharmacy students who want to develop business acumen and leadership skills can enroll in the program. Leadership modules teach 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. They will then earn a Healthcare Business Leadership cord and certificate at their Doctor of Pharmacy commencement. Modules in 2021 included Strategic Hiring, Finance for Clinicians, and High-Performance Leadership.
