Many people inside the pharmacy world realize, to put it mildly, that it is extremely challenging to be a pharmacist. There are so many things that will wear down pharmacists and make them feel like they can’t make a difference anymore. Furthermore, the stress placed on today’s pharmacists in an already hyper-competitive environment makes it difficult to have an emotional (and physical) well being. Alex Barker’s “Indispensable” addresses what is wrong with the pharmacy profession today and what you can do to have an opportunity at a fulfilling, meaningful, dignified career that you get up looking forward to. With the empathy of a pharmacist (after all he is a PharmD), Alex will take you through some thought processes, self examinations and exercises to find out what truly mortivates you, what you are passionate about so you can turn it into a career. He also has a link to resources that can help you along the path to your goals. The best part is that all of this is consdensed into a light read that any pharmacist can make the time for. I highly recommend it!
