BPS Launches Podcast Channel

BPS has established a podcast channel on the Soundcloud social media platform. Through the podcast series, BPS will feature conversations with a wide range of board certified pharmacists and other subject matter experts. There will be interviews with pharmacy leaders about how they landed in their current position, their education and training, trials and tribulations and their thought process and mindset that helped make them successful. BPS podcast guests will provide solid advice on how to overcome challenges both small and large and help the listeners standout in today’s highly competitive healthcare market place. In addition to conversations with thought leaders, BPS staff, specialty Council and Board members will also provide useful information on the BPS Board Certification eligibility and application process, exam administration as well as certification and the maintenance of certification processes.
