NCPA Innovation Center's Pharmacy Ownership Workshop - Part 1


The NCPA Innovation Center offers The Pharmacy Ownership Workshop, an intensive 2.5-day event for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians considering pharmacy ownership. It's a soup-to-nuts crash course on pharmacy ownership, whether you're starting from the ground up, purchasing an existing store, or expanding to become a multi-store owner. Our team of experts answer the nitty-gritty questions about the loan approval process, licensure agreements, creating a start-up checklist, writing a business plan, designing an effective store layout, and much more. 

Topics covered in the program include:

  • Building a successful pharmacy practice
  • Business owner roles, responsibilities, and management styles
  • Financial planning for success and growth
  • Marketing your pharmacy practice
  • Assessing technology needs for the pharmacy
  • Legal and accounting counsel for the new owner, including pitfalls to avoid
  • Floor planning, pricing strategies, and product placement

In short, you'll learn what it takes to run a successful pharmacy...or even pharmacies.
