Your Next Academic Chapter: Career-Sustaining Behaviors for Career Vitality

September 14, 2023
Noon–1:00 p.m. ET

Hosted by the Pharmacy Practice Section

The events of recent years have exacerbated pharmacy faculty burnout, negatively impacting morale and engagement. As a result, some faculty are disengaging while others are choosing to leave academia altogether. An interactive panel of vice-chairs will discuss career-sustaining behaviors for pharmacy faculty at any stage to intentionally curate the next phase of their academic path with a sense of career vitality. Participants will leave the session with personalized strategies for developing career-sustaining behaviors.


  • Describe three career-sustaining behaviors that are pertinent to faculty in colleges and schools of pharmacy.
  • Discuss the importance of value and task alignment and the impact of mismatch on burnout and engagement.
  • Design a personal action plan to implement at least one career-sustaining behavior.
