Virtual PIER

In the summer of 2020 for the first time ever, PittPharmacy PIER was conducted completely virtually! This will continue for the summer of 2022! This program will be conducted through online platforms including Teachable and Zoom. It will include an interactive curriculum, lifelong mentorship with student pharmacists, online webinars with practicing pharmacists, and professional development workshops.

High school and undergraduate students will get the opportunity to learn about unique careers during webinars where practicing pharmacists will share about their paths to their current careers and advice that they have learned along the way. The Question and Answer segment of the webinars will allow PIER Participants to ask any specific questions to the pharmacists about their distinct journeys in this field.

It will take place July 8th – August 5th and the online webinars will take place every Friday during this time. Meetings with PittPharmacy student pharmacists will occur on a weekly basis to review didactic information, share advice for pharmacy school, and answer any questions. The time commitment is about 5-6 hours a week for participants.

Week 1: Orientation – July 8th, 2022
