In this episode of Occupation Station, we meet ACPHS grad Brian Carroll, who had an extremely satisfying career for decades with Eli Lilly and Company before recently retiring. Carroll talks about how his pharmacy background gave him greater credibility in working with physicians as a medical liaison. He recalls what a typical day on the job entailed and how communication skills he honed at ACPHS were called upon to help physicians in their roles of helping patients. Carroll also talks about why pharmacy students were sought after when he was being hired at Eli Lilly and what pharmaceutical companies are now looking for now when they make hiring decisions.
