PODCAST: ACPHS Grad Tells Students, "Don't Be Afraid to Invest in Your Own Education!"
Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2019 -- In this latest edition of Occupation Station, a regular podcast produced by the agency on behalf of Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Bill Shields, former CEO of Advanced Infusion Solutions, talks about how an early change in direction led to a healthcare career that spanned decades!
Shields already held a degree in education when he decided to further challenge himself by gaining a degree in pharmacy at ACPHS.
Even though he quickly found work as a pharmacist, Shields felt a drive to branch out even further and achieved his MBA.
Now he tells others along their career journeys not to be afraid to invest in their own educations.
Shields is a big fan of diversifying, and his resume tells the story with major companies calling on him to work on product development, specialty infusion, regulatory affairs in Washington, D.C. and much more.
