Now here’s a job worth investigating

I’ve been infatuated with job listing lately as I feel that many healthcare systems looking for pharmacists just don’t get it. But I have to give credit where credit is due. I came across the following listing in my RSS feed this morning. It comes from The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy.
