Second year Student Pharmacists who have completed their first practice experience rotations presented posters summarizing their experience in the Frist Lecture Hall on Oct. 6. Fifty-six posters in all were displayed showing unique characteristics of the practice sites and the learnings achieved at these sites. First year pharmacy students, who will begin their practice rotations in January, attended to get tips on site selection, and pharmacy faculty attended to learn about student involvement at the sites.
According to Dr. Mark Chirico, assistant professor of pharmacy practice, who is course coordinator for the P-2 practice experiences, “This forum presented a unique learning opportunity for all participants. It exemplified the practical nature of our program and the hard work our student pharmacists are putting into their education.” The School of Pharmacy has more than 100 sites for training student pharmacists in dispensing and patient care across greater Nashville, and the number of sites is growing every semester to accommodate the growing student body.
