St. John’s University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences has partnered with NCPA/PSSNY Under My Wing Mentorship Program starting October 22, 2018. The Under My Wing Mentorship Program was designed to inspire ownership and motivate future owners. Mentees will acquire the all-around knowledge of owning and running an independent pharmacy business from experienced owners. If you are interested in community pharmacy after graduation or down the line why not start now. Becoming an independent owner, or even working in the community setting, is as rewarding of an experience as you can have as a pharmacist. This program is open to students in their P1 and above.

Responsibilities of the Mentee include:

  • Maintain professionalism in all forms of communication with his/her mentor
  • Attend all 3 milestone events as outlines above.
  • Regular communication with your mentor, whether through e-mail, over the phone, via skype, or in person.
