Executive Residents

Ryan Burke, PharmD

Ryan Burke is the Director of Professional Affairs at PTCB, where he serves as a liaison to state and national pharmacy associations, state boards of pharmacy, and pharmacy technician organizations. He closely follows state legislative and regulatory changes that may impact pharmacy technician practice and monitors trends related to pharmacy technician education, training, and certification requirements. 

Before joining PTCB in August 2018, Ryan worked at the American Pharmacists Association in practice and professional affairs and governance roles. He also has experience working as a PTCB CPhT at Walgreens.  

Ryan earned his PharmD degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe College of Pharmacy and completed a post-graduate executive residency program in Association Management and Leadership with the APhA Foundation.

“The executive fellowship prepared me for a unique and rewarding career in pharmacy association management. I would not be where I am today without the knowledge and skills I acquired during my time with the APhA Foundation. I am grateful to the Knowltons for their generosity in supporting the program for so many years.”
