The goal of the competition is to motivate pharmacy students to create the blueprint necessary for buying an existing independent community pharmacy or developing a new pharmacy.
In the short time since we began the competition, several competition participants have gone on to successfully implement these plans after graduating from pharmacy school.
Named in honor of Neil Pruitt, Sr. Joseph Schutte, two pillars of the independent pharmacy community, the Student Business Plan Competition is the first national contest of its kind in the pharmacy profession.
Pruitt grew his company, United Health Services, from a single independent pharmacy in northeast Georgia into a multifaceted health care organization with operations in several southeastern states.
His career started with owning his own community pharmacy and eventually he owned six pharmacies in Kentucky that provided services for thousands of patients in long-term care facilities. Looking toward the future, our pharmacy colleagues can help insure the positive momentum of the Business Plan Competition and influence tomorrow's pharmacists with a contribution to the NCPA Foundation Business Plan Competition Endowment Fund.
It is our hope that we continue to help students explore the myriad of opportunities in pharmacy ownership.
