Courses Taken
Notable Courses

My favorite course in college was Global Supply Chain Management. The subject is fascinating. I took it again when pursuing my MBA at URI.

I have completed a full PharmD curriculum, MBA curriculum, and BS in Business Administration curriculum. Courses that I found particularly interesting and to have an impact on my career trajectory include:

  • Global Supply Chain Management
  • Pharmacy Administration
  • Buyer Behavior
  • Managerial Marketing
  • Sales Principles
  • International Business Relations
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Pharmacoeconomics

I continue to take courses since I believe learning never ends. I complete short courses on COREreadiness, an eLearning platform for healthcare professionals, LinkedIn Learning for business principles, Cardone University for business practices, and I attend a variety of pharmacy tradeshows for continuing education credits.
