Welcome to the Pharmacy Profession!
If you’re a “new practitioner” – generally defined as a pharmacist who entered practice within the past 5 years – you’re likely to have questions, challenges, and special interests different from those of pharmacists who have been practicing for several years.
As you transition into your pharmacy career, know that TPA works for you and with you, to positively impact pharmacy practice in Tennessee. If you ever have questions, feel free to reach out to a member of our staff.
