My favorite experience from pharmacy school is being involved in patient care and community service events. By serving and making a meaningful impact on the community, we as student pharmacists also get a chance to represent UTHSC and advocate for the pharmacy profession.

How has the UTHSC College of Pharmacy helped or prepared you for your career goals?

UTHSC has challenged me to step out of my comfort zone, take on leadership roles, and truly explore my potential. I became involved with the research, the Admissions Committee, and APhA-ASP Operation Immunization. Besides getting closer to my goal of becoming a clinical specialist in cardiology, through the endless extracurricular opportunities, I also found my passion in doing community service and organizing patient care events.
