MPA | Our Executive Fellowship

The MPA Executive Fellowship is a challenging program outside the typical post-graduate training where you will hone your business, leadership and management skills, all while preparing to advance the profession of pharmacy and understand the role of an association.

The Fellowship's Core Mission: The mission of the MPA Executive Fellowship is to produce highly competent individuals who are prepared to assume high-level leadership positions in pharmacy practice and/or a professional association by providing exceptional training in all areas of organizational development and administration, including leadership, professional advancement and business growth.

If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact Farah Jalloul, PSI director of professional development and fellowship director at (517) 377-0224.
