It’s all about ‘fit.’
As one of the top medical institutions in the nation, the career opportunities offer far more than just a retail or inpatient pharmacy setting. There are so many areas to practice and gain exposure and to even create roles for yourself… Barnes-Jewish is all about “fit;” your own drive and determination is noticed and encouraged. After a few years in entry-level management I went back to grad school to get my MBA and was able to utilize the tuition assistance program, as well as our online management development courses.
Tremendous support. Incredible exposure.
In my 13 years at Barnes-Jewish, I’ve progressed from medication dispensing in an inpatient environment to recruitment and program development—a management position that Barnes-Jewish actually created for me. I never imagined I’d have this opportunity out of school, and I had the support of senior leadership every step of the way. Early into my current role, I was having one-on-one conversations with the president of the hospital, and interacting with the president of the BJC Health System. To have this level of exposure is tremendous.
