Basics of Self-Awareness and Professional Development

When:  Feb 20, 2020 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET)

Hosted by the Leadership Development SIG. 

Pharmacy educators have a vested interest in workforce development, including leadership capabilities. As leadership development is a multifaceted process, student pharmacists should design their own leadership development plan early in their education. Similar to continuous professional development, where an individualized plan is designed to advance clinical and patient care skills, leadership development planning involves self-assessment of leadership skills to design a plan for leadership growth. In this webinar presentation, faculty will provide an introduction to the significance of fostering self-awareness among student pharmacists, and offer an overview into the incorporation of leadership development planning into pharmacy curricula to foster professional development skills. 


  1. Identify approaches for personal professional leadership development planning to derive best practices for incorporating leadership development planning in pharmacy curricula.  
  2. Demonstrate the interconnectivity between self-awareness, continuous professional development, and leadership development planning.
