Format and Structure

Our program, sponsored in full by PTCB with no cost to participants, offers a unique blend of self-paced learning and interactive virtual sessions led by esteemed PLEI leaders. Participants will engage in 14 self-paced lessons delivered through videos, organized into five modules covering Vision, “Response-ability,” Integrity, Grit, and Results Through Others.


The program includes five 1-hour virtual discussions, along with a 90-minute orientation session and an in-person meeting scheduled for May. The sessions will be held once every other week.


Our hybrid program consists of two cohorts this year, with the first being invitation-only. Each cohort will be comprised of 10-12 participants. Future cohorts will be open to other interested pharmacy technicians through an application process. 

To receive information about future cohorts, please submit the interest form.


"This leadership institute is a testament to our commitment to advancing the pharmacy profession by investing in the growth and leadership potential of pharmacy technicians."
