Online POP Testimonials
Learn about the career goals, work-life-balance, and program highlights.
"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.
