Mohammed Umar, P3

Admissions Student Ambassador

Touro College of Pharmacy

Hello! As an enthusiastic advocate for pharmacy education and a proud representative of my institution, I am deeply committed to making a meaningful impact in the field of healthcare. My journey into pharmacy started with a strong foundation in biology, which I pursued during my undergraduate years at CUNY-Lehman College. There, I cultivated my passion for the sciences, ultimately leading me to embark on this exciting path towards becoming a pharmacist. I embarked on my academic journey in the United States after relocating from Ghana, West Africa, where I spent my formative years. This cross-cultural experience has enriched my perspective and allowed me to appreciate the diversity of healthcare practices and needs worldwide. As an undergrad student, I dedicated myself to my studies, majoring in biology. This rigorous program not only provided me with a comprehensive understanding of the biological sciences but also instilled in me the importance of research, critical thinking, and a strong work ethic.

However, my path to pharmacy has been marked by a relentless pursuit of knowledge and a commitment to improving healthcare. As a pharmacy student, I am eager to embrace the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. I am proud of my Ghanaian heritage and grateful to Touro College of Pharmacy for the educational experiences that have shaped me into the passionate and dedicated pharmacy student I am today. My journey has just begun, and I look forward to the exciting adventures that pharmacy school and my future career will bring.
