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.
Marcia W. Jackson, Program Manager at Manhattan Staten Island Area Health Education Center, came to Touro College of Pharmacy recently to speak to a diverse group of student pharmacists about the public health-related mission of her organization. “She shared opportunities for student pharmacists, by participating in their AHEC Scholars program, to stand out as health professionals who offer quality care and resources to the community,” said Professor Bupendra Shah, who helped organize the event. “The students welcomed and appreciated her visit. The AHEC program was developed by Congress in 1971, and its mission is aligned with ours - to help recruit and train health professionals who are committed to underserved populations.”
Today at Touro College of Pharmacy second year (P2) #pharmacystudents participated in their Institutional IPPE orientation. What differentiates us from other #pharmacy programs other than our employment rate and superior NAPLEX pass rate? We offer more time in the field prior to graduation. You will complete 10 weeks of introductory pharmacy practice experiences and 54 weeks of advanced pharmacy practice experiences! #gettingreadyforrotations #pharm4me #pharmacyschool #pharmacyeducation #pharmacylife #pharmacycollege

#Tonight was the Pharmacy Industry Networking Night on-campus event The event provided our students an opportunity to network with current pharmacy industry professionals. Small, group discussions allowed our guests to share their professional experiences and advice. The format was a kind of "speed dating", with guests seated at a table and students traveling between tables every 7-8 minutes. Opening remarks and a welcome to all from our Dean Henry Cohen and Anastasiya Shor, director of Touro College of Pharmacy’s Drug Information Center. This event was co-sponsored by our student orgs, IPhO, DIA, ISPOR and the Office of Research Administration. #pharmacylife #pharmaceuticalindustry #pharmacyeducation #pharmacystudents #pharmacyschool #pharm4me #indispensable #pharmacists
