Albany, N.Y. — The new dean of the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Gregory Dewey, is looking to gain insight from industry experts.
Dewey, who was appointed dean in June, told the Albany Business Review that he would put together a corporate board to get an idea of what skills industry leaders look for from graduates, and what skills they might be missing.
"It's a time of changing roles in the healthcare profession, and we want to be advancing our students to meet some of these changing roles," Dewey said.
Already, pharmaceutical and pharmacy insiders from New York and New Englad have expressed interest in being on the board, including Kinney Drugs and Albany Molecular Research. The first meeting will be in October.
