    Ep 565 Who will Pass the NAPLEX and MPJE

    Ep 565 Who will Pass the NAPLEX and MPJE

    The lack of urgency with preparing for the NAPLEX and MPJE always bothered me. It's like here's the one thing that if you don't pass, you don't work, and students are completing APPE requirements instead of getting deep into their preparation. In this episode, I talk about how NAPLEX pass rates which were in the high 90s in 2009 are now in the high 70s. Only 1554 students last year graduated from a school of pharmacy with a pass rate in the 90s. Make sure you prepare early and often for the NAPLEX. I reference a pharmacology review course here: https://residency.teachable.com/p/mobile and that TLDRPharmacy has some great MPJE materials.

    Ep 564 Residency Scramble and Residency Mentors

    Ep 564 Residency Scramble and Residency Mentors

    My wife and I matched in the old scramble (which is now more organized as Phase II) but 15 years later she is in an ambulatory care clinical position and I have been teaching in college for that same time, both jobs we love. In this episode, I talk about the importance of mentors and how those residencies available in the scramble can lead to an excellent career that is very work/life balance excellent as well.

    Ep 564 How do I Match in Phase II of the Pharmacy Residency Match?

    Ep 564 How do I Match in Phase II of the Pharmacy Residency Match?

    Phase II is about speed. With over 700 unfilled PGY 1 positions and only a few hundred more than that who will put in applications, you do have a very good chance in Phase II.
    If you want my one-on-one help go to https://residency.teachable.com/p/phase2
    My turnaround is around 24 hours. 
    The data show that you should have a better than 50% chance of matching in Phase II this  year with the number of available positions, even better if you are looking for a community pharmacy position.

    Ep 563 What are my odds of matching to my pharmacy residency after my interview

    Ep 563 What are my odds of matching to my pharmacy residency after my interview

    The odds of matching to residency are very dependent on the school of pharmacy you are going to, while the top schools match above 90%, the lowest schools match at 20%, so it's still a good idea to start job hunting before the match because there are hundreds of pharmacists getting the news on the exact same day. 
    If you need my help in Phase II, you can find my website here, I expect there will be close to 700 open positions after Phase I.

    Good luck!

    Ep 564 Biggest Residency Interview Mistake

    Ep 564 Biggest Residency Interview Mistake

    The biggest residency interview mistake is not focusing on being positively remembered as there are many applicants, and standing out takes the 5 Ps:
    People PGY-2 Professionalism Purpose Practice. With those in your tool belt, you can continue the conversation after the interview to ensure you are not forgotten.

    Ep 563 First Interview Offers are Out and Free Case Study Preparation

    Ep 563 First Interview Offers are Out and Free Case Study Preparation

    It's exciting and stress-relieving when that first interview offer comes in, but do you know what to do? In this episode, I've gone over the first steps and you can check out the course I have to see if it's something that you want help with your presentation PowerPoint and need email support. Sometimes you just don't want to ask your professors questions. Anyway, you can find the free Case Study document and link to the course here:

Invaluable resource!

I am so glad to have found the resources that Dr. Tony Guerra provides, not just in this podcast but also his books and YouTube channel! I have both utilized and referred to all of them as I begin my last year of pharmacy school with APPE rotations on the horizon. I have also encouraged my peers to check them out and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for practical, useful, and insightful guidance/advice.

Helpful podcast

This podcast is wonderfully helpful at discussing topics that are most relevant to the pharmacy profession.

I find that some of the topics/interviews I didn’t care for too much, but overall, this is a helpful, informative and concise podcast. Very much recommend!

Great resource

Tony is a visionary in the field of pharmacy. I don’t know anyone who has their finger on the pulse of the profession as well as he does. I love that he is providing real help to those of us who are trying to find our way into pharmacy. I admire him and the work he does. I absolutely recommend this podcast to students and young pharmacists who are still figuring out how to get into the profession.
