executive director of the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy

Cody Wiberg, Pharm.D., M.S., R.Ph. | 2009 Graduate

"Even though I had been the Executive Director of the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy for two years – and had served as the Pharmacy Program Manager for the State of Minnesota Medicaid Agency for nearly seven years – I was basically self-taught. I reasoned that being self-taught, I didn’t necessarily even know what other information might be useful. Once I read about the program on the University of Florida Web site, I decided it was just the sort of program I was looking for."
