Executive and Staff Recruitment

Vacancies at the DoP and management level are increasing and the ability to identify qualified candidates is often difficult. SMMA works with a national pharmacy executive search firm specializing exclusively in health system recruitment who has developed relationships with academic hospitals, community based and level I trauma hospitals around the country. With these facilities, they have placed pharmacists for permanent and interim positions in various specialties and at all levels including Director, Clinical and Staff pharmacists.

If your team needs experienced leadership to assure success

Contract Management

As one newly appointed director said, “ I don’t even know , what I don’t know!”

Many health-systems are looking to outsource the management of pharmacy services in order to assure success and compliance with regulatory requirements. The leadership gap has been significant as the number of professionally trained leaders are few in comparison to the demand. SMMA can draw from its pool of nationally known leaders to guide your ship through the” white water “that lies in front of you. Contracted pharmacy services can be provided on a short-term as well as long-term basis.
