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 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 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.

Welcome to new TCOP assistant professor, Dr. Justin Andrade. “My decision to pursue a career at Touro College of Pharmacy was due to a multitude of valuable reasons. The faculty and administration at TCOP were one of the most welcoming groups of individuals during my interview in May 2021. The strong bond between all of the departments at TCOP really opened my eyes in the aspect of collaborative research to optimize patient care and enhance the student experience of the PharmD program. I am committed to the profession of pharmacy through the rewarding experiences of precepting students on APPE rotations. Additionally, I hope to instill a passion for pharmacy knowledge that is ever-growing for our students throughout the curriculum by utilizing novel technological resources available at TCOP.” #welcome #newfaculty #pharmacy #pharmacyeducation #pharmacyschool #pharmacyprofessor #touropharmacy
#adaylate for #WomenPharmacistDay but it’s always the right time to celebrate incredible women, moms, and passion for your profession. From our Assistant Dean for Curriculum, Dr. Batoul Senhaji-Tomza: “So proud of all the pharmacist moms out there! So beautiful to be part of a rewarding profession that allows me the flexibility to excell at both of my important missions: that of being a mom and of serving the public. Today more than ever we need to exert more compassion in every facet of what we do, pharmacists as front liners have been able to perpetrate exactly the compassion needed during this pandemic and beyond. As front liners and the most easily accessible health care workers they have proved to be an incredible source of knowledge and comfort to the public when it was difficult to reach other providers. Cheers to all my fellow pharmacists!!” #mom #frontlineworkers #frontliner #pharmacist #compassion #APhM2021 #pharmacysaveslives #PharmacistsProvideCare #touropharmacy #pharmacyheroes #pharm4me #pharmacylife #pharmacy #pharmacistmom #pharmacistsalwaystrusted
