Imagine Your Future Here
P4 LENDELLE RAYMOND: I guess when people think of pharmacy, they always think of their retail pharmacist at your local community. So they always think we're just there to fill their prescription. Just count the pill, put them in, give them a 30-day supply. But of course, we are more than that.
DESCRIPTION: Text, Imagine a career of endless possibilities.
DESCRIPTION: Justice Kwansa, Fourth-Year Student.
P4 JUSTICE KWANZA: I did not know about how many different fields the career of pharmacy had until I came to Touro College of Pharmacy.
DESCRIPTION: Lendelle Raymond.
P4 LENDELLE RAYMOND: You could specialize in infectious disease.
P4 JUSTICE KWANZA: You could specialize in ambulatory care. Then we have the retail track, you know, Walgreens, Duane Reade.
P2 AVIVA RAKHAMIMOVA: You can become anything from a nuclear pharmacist to a veterinary pharmacist.
P4 LENDELLE RAYMOND: You could even work in advertising.
P4 JUSTICE KWANZA: In hospitals, you could be a staff pharmacist.
P4 MIR MAHMOOD: But right now, I see myself more in the pharmaceutical industry role.

P2 AVIVA RAKHAMIMOVA: My first rotation was in retail pharmacy.

Touro College of Pharmacy P1 student Nia Lowe shares what #BlackHistoryMonth means to her 🙌🏽 ‘For me, Black History Month is a time for both remembrance of a painful past and celebration of an equally joyous one full of achievement. February gives people the opportunity to reflect upon how far the black community has come and just how much further we can go. As an aspiring pharmacist, this is extremely relevant to the profession as it continues to progress in not only its range of practice but also in its growing number of black providers. Starting with James McCune Smith, the first African American to earn a medical degree and run a pharmacy in New York City in 1837, today there are more than 40,000 practicing black pharmacists - and I hope that this number only continues to rise. Pharmacists are one of the most front facing healthcare providers to their communities, so it is important that we are just as diversified as the people we serve in order to establish strong, trusting, and everlasting relationships.’
