To accomplish this goal of
professional development, I as a student of pharmacy should:
DEVELOP a sense of loyalty and duty to the profession of pharmacy by
being a builder of community, one able and willing to contribute to the well
being of others and one who enthusiastically accepts the responsibility and
accountability for membership in the profession.
professional competence through life long learning. I must strive for
high ideals, teamwork and unity within the profession in order to provide
optimal patient care.
SUPPORT my colleagues by actively encouraging personal commitment to the
Oath of Maimonides and a Code of Ethics as set forth by the profession.
INCORPORATE into my life and practice, dedication to excellence. This
will require an ongoing reassessment of personal and professional values.
MAINTAIN the highest ideals and professional attributes to ensure and
facilitate the covenantal relationship required of the pharmaceutical care
The profession of pharmacy is one that demands adherence to a set of rigid
ethical standards. These high ideals are necessary to ensure the quality of care
extended to the patients I serve. As a student of pharmacy, I believe this does
not start with graduation; rather, it begins with my membership in the
professional college community. Therefore, I must strive to uphold these
standards as I advance toward full membership in the profession of pharmacy.
