I’m publishing one episode per day in the month of November 2020 as part of a challenge called NaPodPoMo. It stands for National Podcast Post Month. I’m using these extra episodes to talk about my new online course: Pronounce Drug Names Like a Pro.

Highlights from the episode
Why did I create this course? I care about pronouncing drug names correctly, and I was inspired by voice actors to create a drug name pronunciation course.
Who is it for? It could be of use to voice actors, healthcare professionals, students (pharmacy students, nursing students, medical students, and so on), patients, caregivers, and more. Really, just about anyone!
I created a course that, in hindsight, I wish I would have had in college: something to teach me how to pronounce all the drug names that I hadn’t come across in pharmacy school and all the drug names yet-to-be invented.
The concept behind my course is, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” I teach you where to find the correct pronunciations, how to break them down, and other tips and tricks as you aspire to Pronounce Drug Names Like a Pro! The course focuses on non-proprietary drug names. Those are also called generic names. Specifically, I focus on the US Adopted Names. I also teach how to find brand-name drug pronunciations. Finding brand name drug pronunciations is different from finding generic ones.
