Hello everyone,

This past weekend I attended the AACP (American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy) Annual Meeting in Grapevine, Texas.  I attended meetings about evaluating and using medical apps, enhancing your mentoring, guiding, and sponsoring skills, global pharmacy experiences, data mining, global health ethics, e-professionalism, the history of pharmacy, geriatric pharmacy, and conflict resolution on an interprofessional team.  I was also able to attend poster presentations and an exhibit hall.  I learned a lot and hope to attend more professional meetings.

Hello everyone,

Hi everyone,

This starts my one week experience in a public health setting.  I was placed at a local YMCA where I will be working with another pharmacy student to teach about a public health topic to both children as well as adults.  It has been a great beginning of the week and I look forward to rest of this experience.

Good luck to those on rotations.

Hi everyone,

I hope your summer is off to a great start.  I am in the midst of my second week at my community IPPE rotation and I am learning a lot of new things.  

Something that I learned about the school this week is that in addition to our ACPHS admissions blog we also have a school wide blog page that was started this spring.  This blog has a lot of interesting information on it!  Check it out!

Good morning everyone,

I started my first rotation this week, my IPPE rotation in community pharmacy.  I was placed at a local community pharmacy.  I will have a three week experience where I will learn about the workflow of the pharmacy, prescription and OTC medications, counseling, professionalism, and the pharmacy systems management.  So far it has been a great experience and I look forward to the weeks to come.

Good luck to all completing roations.

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer! Here in Albany, there is a new exhibit from the National Library of Medicine on display in the Gozzo Student Center Atrium. The exhibit, called “Against the Odds: Making a Difference in Global Health,” features images and facts showing communities worldwide working with the government, scientists, international organizations, and advocates in order to improve public health and prevent disease. I saw the exhibit myself, and it is great! Stop by if you have a chance - it will be on display until June 26th.

Hi everyone,

For the students who are on rotation, one of the requirements is to be certified in CPR.  Each student has to take a CPR class through the school or an outside organization.  June 1-7 is National CPR Awareness Week.  It is a great week to spread awareness about the importance of CPR training and become trained if you are not trained already.  You never know when you may need to use CPR.

I hope everyone has had a great first week of rotations and a wonderful Memorial Day!  Good luck as you enter your second week of rotations.
