NCPA Innovation Center's Pharmacy Ownership Workshop - Part 2


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. More than 2500 pharmacists have attended the Ownership Workshop and more than 50 percent of past workshop participants now own their own pharmacy.

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.
