Because Norton Healthcare is a large health care system, opportunities for movement from one facility to another as well as a variety of management positions are available. Pharmacists have the opportunity to advance within the organization, thereby retaining benefits and service date. Career assistance, e-learning and Norton University are available resources for pharmacists. Norton Healthcare offers its pharmacists lateral and upward mobility on their career track, which is rarely found in a retail pharmacy environment.
Norton Healthcare has partnered with area colleges and universities to offer pharmacy students educational assistance through Norton Scholars, a forgivable student loan program. Additionally, an experiential learning program offers advanced clinical rotations where students work alongside pharmacists and apply what they've learned in school in a practice setting.
"Norton Healthcare offers excellent training and on-the-job experience with all aspects of pharmacy. The pharmacists receive broad exposure to different hospital practices and opportunities for personal as well as career development."
-Amanda Castle, Pharm.D., Norton Audubon Hospital
"I started out as a pharmacy technician. It's because of my supervisors' modeling and professional development that I am a pharmacist today. They took me out on rounds and exposed me to working closely with physicians in a team environment that really feels like a family."
-Shannon Mayes, Pharm.D., BCPS
