Tennessee Pharmacists Association

Nashville, Tenn. — June 6, 2024 TPA is pleased to announce the selection of 25 pharmacists to participate in the 2024 Emerging Leaders Academy! These individuals were selected through a competitive application process and will comprise the Academy’s inaugural cohort.

The Emerging Leaders Academy is an annual leadership training program involving up to 25 new practitioners in Tennessee. In recognition of its importance to the development of our association’s future leadership, the Tennessee Pharmacists Research and Education Foundation (TPREF) helps underwrite some of the program’s costs for selected participants.

The program is designed in partnership with the Pharmacy Leadership & Education Institute (PLEI). It utilizes its STAR Framework to help attendees develop leadership skills, enabling personal and professional growth. Through learning the STAR Framework, program participants can look forward to leadership development in several key focus areas: Vision, Response-ability, Results Through Others, Grit, and Integrity.

The Emerging Leaders Academy aspires to build a pipeline of leaders for Tennessee pharmacy. To achieve this goal, the association looks forward to facilitating the training of the Academy’s inaugural cohort of pharmacists!

Applications for the 2025 Emerging Leaders Academy will open in spring 2025. If TPA members are interested in participating, they may denote this on the TPA Leadership Interest Form.
