Keep Your Options Open

Keep Your Options Open is a pharmacy student recruitment program developed by the Iowa Pharmacy Association.

Often times pharmacists are asked to speak about the profession of pharmacy to a group of students or to be available to answer questions and hand out materials about pharmacy at career fairs. It is not always easy to convey everything involved in the profession of pharmacy and the role that pharmacists play as part of the health care team. The "Keep Your Options Open" program is designed to educate students about pharmacy school and the endless opportunities which would be available to them as pharmacists.

The program kit includes an 8-minute video or slides, tips for the presenter, take home materials for students, a pharmacy careers and education resource list, a list of all colleges of pharmacy in the United States, and a letter which you can send to counselors informing them of your availability to give a presentation to interested students.

Keep Your Options Open is a great opportunity for pharmacists to educate students about the profession of pharmacy and to assist the profession in recruiting top quality pharmacy students, who will one day be the leaders of our profession.
