Click here to meet the 2019 - 2020 I-LEAD Fellows.

The I-LEAD Academy is designed to grow and expand the role of both pharmacists and pharmacy technicians through legislative advocacy, strategic planning, financial management, education, and outreach. Through participation in ISHP, you can learn from respected leaders of pharmacy practice in Idaho and make connections with mentors from which you will benefit through your career.

As an I-LEAD fellow, you will become an active member of selected committees within ISHP. The assignments and projects you complete will not only strengthen ISHP and improve pharmacy practice across Idaho, but also provide value to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians working the frontlines of healthcare in our communities.

The one-year program begins in September with a retreat during the ISHP Annual Fall Meeting in Sun Valley. The fellows meet regularly throughout the year, with planned bimonthly activities.

Learning Objectives
The I-LEAD Academy will:

1. Provide cost-effective programming for pharmacy staff expressing interest in growing as a leader within their organization and within ISHP
2. Encourage and provide resources for more pharmacists/technicians in Idaho to pursue local, regional and national leadership opportunities
3. Utilize novel technology platforms to encourage state-wide involvement in this leadership curriculum
4. Promote diversity of applicant (community, hospital, managed care, academia, technicians, etc.) and seminar leaders (within and outside of pharmacy) to encourage unique learning and networking opportunities
5. Establish a conduit for the development of knowledge base and consequential innovation to promote positive pharmacy organizational growth

Each participant in the I-LEAD program will be asked to identify a personal mentor with whom they will meet with throughout the program. The mentor must be an ISHP member. Participants should meet regularly with their mentors and discuss leadership principles that can be applied to their professional environment.
