Dear Pharmacy Students,
Welcome to the PittPharmacy Portfolio site!
The Pharmacy School Administration and the members of the
Professional Development and Co-Curriculum Committee have created this site for
you. The overarching goal is that this
site is to be used as a reference and a tool for students as you track your
professional development progress. Your
portfolio is personal because it is your vehicle for collecting and presenting
the evidence that you are progressing in your mastery of curricular outcomes as
you advance to your career path.
The PittPharmacy Portfolio is your opportunity to
shine. I know that you will apply
yourself to creating your portfolio in a thoughtful and deliberate manner. As Doris Dillon(1)
states, “The creation of a professional portfolio requires careful
effort.” She compares it to a garden, saying, "It takes planning and
hard work, requires the weeding out of unnecessary elements, and
promotes positive feelings. You should be proud to show it off!"
Your Professional Development Advisors and I look forward to
seeing your progress over time.
Sincerely, Dean Kroboth
