Wonderful tool as a clinician!

Each day on my drive to work I listen to this podcast and I learn a lot from the expertise of the speakers. The episodes are current, relevant, short, and not too overwhelming!

A Mental Health Pharmacist’s Take

I really enjoy this podcast. As a Pharmacist Practitioner, I really enjoy having this available and listen to the podcast regularly. I also tend to send episodes to the Pharmacy Practice Residents on rotation with me.

I only give the podcast a 4 out of 5 because pharmacists don’t appear to receive ACPE credit for listening…although the majority of these are great for pharmacists continuing education. Hopefully that can be updated especially for those PharmDs who require more CE credits for maintaining their board certification.
