Congratulations to second-year College of Pharmacy student Raneem Alayoubi, on being accepted to the Pharmacy Ownership and Leadership Academy (POLA)!
Each year, POLA selects just 40 pharmacy students from across the U.S. for a week-long pharmacy leadership experience.
In June, Alayoubi will travel to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, Arkansas, for a week to learn what it takes to own a pharmacy and how to write business plans, as well as to learn personal and professional development; self-awareness; and the importance of leadership in the pharmacy profession.
“I'm so honored to be a part of this,” says Alayoubi. “I truly believe that to practice at the top of our license, we need to showcase our ability and push the envelope of what defines a pharmacist. This academy will do that, not only helping me grow personally and professionally, but help me develop the skills needed to advocate for my profession and create my own dream job.”
