Jeff Whissell

Headshot of Jeff Whissell - Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy

In 2010, pharmacist Jeff Whissell left a successful leadership position in Alberta’s provincial health authority to take on the role of Director of Pharmacy Practice at the Alberta Pharmacists Association. Here he has been encouraged to take his leadership skills even further by pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree through the Royal Roads University in Victoria, B.C., and his Wellspring Award grant will support that.

Whissell says completing his MBA will align with his overall objective to provide better care to Canadians through changes in the healthcare system that support higher quality care. He believes this educational pursuit will also enhance his understanding of the political, business and healthcare environments in which pharmacists practice.
