Pharmacists Mutual Scholarship for the NCPA Ownership Workshop

Ownership Workshop

The NCPA Pharmacy Ownership Workshop, sponsored by McKesson, and in part by Live Oak Bank and Pharmacists Mutual Companies, is for pharmacists considering pharmacy ownership or current owners looking to polish their management skills. It’s a soup-to-nuts crash course on pharmacy ownership, whether you’re starting from the ground up, purchasing an existing store, or expanding to become a multi-store owner.
