ADA - The Ohio Northern University Raabe College of Pharmacy and CareerScript LLC have announced a multi-year partnership to empower pharmacy students with novel technology and cutting-edge resources to enhance career development.
Jon Sprague, dean of the ONU Raabe College of Pharmacy said, "We feel this partnership provides an invaluable resource to ONU students and alumni who are looking for some guidance when deciding on career choices. CareerScript provides our students and alumni with important tools and resources to utilize and enrich their lives as productive pharmacists."
The partnership will focus on expanding ONU students' visibility to alternative career paths, provide access to mobile technologies for innovative career design, and deliver customized tools for accountability to engage outside stakeholders for bolstered career success.
Furthering the reach of the partnership, the agreement also grants ONU pharmacy alumni access to CareerScript's online solutions at a negotiated rate. The partnership will build upon ONU's globally recognized PharmD program and CareerScript's first-in-class solutions for helping pharmacists achieve more beyond pharmacy practices.
"The world of health care needs more great pharmacists, but it needs these great pharmacists to have influence in many areas above and beyond just traditional pharmacy settings," says Scott Pope, PharmD, CEO of CareerScript. "This partnership is now uniquely positioned to unleash a new breed of pharmacists capable of playing more diverse roles in U.S. health care."
