Future Pharmacists Explain How They Discovered Their True Calling
Imagine Your Future Here
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.
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.
P4 VIVIANA ARCE: Touro is preparing me--
P4 LENDELLE RAYMOND: Touro prepared me--
P4 MIR MAHMOOD: Touro prepared me--
P4 JUSTICE KWANZA: Touro has prepared me to be an essential part of any health care team.
P4 LENDELLE RAYMOND: We get a more intimate classroom setting where the professors actually know your name.
P4 MIR MAHMOOD: Almost every professor I knew had an open door policy.
P4 VIVIANA ARCE: Professors here are experts in their field. You get infectious disease pharmacists teaching you infectious disease. You get cardiology specialists teaching you cardiology pharmacy.
P4 LENDELLE RAYMOND: They were there for you throughout the whole process. They guided you from really not knowing anything about pharmacy to eventually becoming the professional you're about to be.
P4 MIR MAHMOOD: They offer more real-life experience as opposed to most other pharmacy schools. During my ambulatory care rotations, I have been able to work with the HIV clinic.
P4 VIVIANA ARCE: I did medication therapy management.
P2 AVIVA RAKHAMIMOVA: My first rotation was in retail pharmacy.
P4 MIR MAHMOOD: I've worked with a clinical microbiology, and I've also done a research in public health.
P4 JUSTICE KWANZA: Ambulatory care, internal medicine, acute care, IV, all of these rotations are experiences to make you better. And during this rotation is for you to figure out which field of pharmacy you thrive in and is ideal for you. Pharmacists are really the front line in health care.
P4 VIVIANA ARCE: I want to be on the front lines of health care. I want to directly have an impact on patient's life.
P4 MIR MAHMOOD: But you're that reference that patients can have access to.
P4 LENDELLE RAYMOND: Getting my patients to live their happier life or better life, that would be the most rewarding part of being a pharmacist.
P4 JUSTICE KWANZA: Touro is a small campus, but it's like a small campus that is doing amazing and bigger things.
P4 VIVIANA ARCE: It's not people trying to get ahead of each other.
P4 LENDELLE RAYMOND: It feels like a family being here.
P4 JUSTICE KWANZA: Touro was the best choice for me.
As we continue to celebrate American Pharmacists Month, TCOP #firstyear #pharmacystudent Ryan Fabian would like to give special #thanks to his mentor, #pharmacist Dr. Vickie Powell. - - - I met my mentor as I was finishing my contract at the Armory, NYP's vaccination clinic. Word spread that I got accepted to TCOP, and Dr. Powell's assistant set up a meeting for me. I walked into the meeting, resume in hand, and introduced myself. I told her all about my journey through academia and my experience working as a pharmacy technician. I realized how similar we were when she told me her story. She comes from an immigrant background and is first generation. She was the first to go to college and the first to seek graduate education. She attributes her success to her support system. In an excerpt from "Letters from Women In Pharmacy," a book where her story was featured, she opens up with the quote, "Each one teach one." I told her my biggest fear was that not having anyone to support me. Who would I go to if I got stuck? Who would show me what pharmacy was like outside of the classroom? Who would take me to my first conference? Dr. Powell will. With her help, I've already been connected to an ID clinical pharmacist. I've secured a position as a pharmacy technician at the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, a position that will evolve with my education. Dr. Powell has a long history of taking mentees under her wings. Her mentees all share one trait: they are all leaders in pharmacy. It's empowering to know that as scared as I am in my new venture, I have a team of people supporting me. #thankyou #mentor #pharmacyheroes #pharmacyleader #supportnetwork #supportsystem #firsts #pharamacytechnician #infectiousdiseasepharmacist #pharmacystudent #futurepharmd #touropharmacy
