    Boot Camp - 2 days to turn you from pharmacists to owners and earn 16 CE Hours

Next Boot Camp - Due to the Coronavirus no upcoming boot camps are currently scheduled.  We will udate this page as soon as new boot camps are added.

When preparing for a marathon you only have a certain amount of time to train before the race. We only have two days to turn you from pharmacists to owners. Like marathon training, our pharmacy boot camp is intense and essential. Unlike the marathon, our training is informal and fun - while still gaining useful skills. We cover all the essential aspects of ownership while giving you an opportunity to ask all your questions plus develop a peer group with your fellow attendees. Just as a marathon runner has a completely different perspective than a casual jogger, you can transform your view of the business from a pharmacist to that of a successful owner.

NOTICE: CANCELLED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - Cincinnati, OH at Masters Pharmaceutical HQ - March 28,29

Independent Rx Consulting has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel our Pharmacy Boot Camp that is scheduled for March 28 & 29. Based on the latest guidance from public health officials, the travel bans implemented by different institutions, an expanding number of local cases of COVID-19 being reported, the WHO’s declaration of a global pandemic, and guidance from state and federal officials it became clear to us that canceling was the right course of action. We will be refunding 100% of your registration fee or if you want to transfer the fee to our next scheduled boot camp, we can do that. We appreciate your patience during this process, as it may take several days for all refunds to be completed. Thank you for your understanding.
