Is Pharmacy Right for Me?

students in UConn Pharmacy Lecture class

After the initial pre-pharmacy years (freshman and sophomore years) balancing coursework alongside rotations in the first professional year (Professional year 1 or the equivalent of junior year) can be challenging but students do have time to enjoy sports and personally fulfilling extra curricular activities. Classes and faculty become family and there are plenty of opportunities for clubs, community events, and socials that add variety and depth to the experience. Our location close to Boston, New York and Providence also allows for easy excursions off campus.

The rewards of being a part of our program are many. School of Pharmacy staff and faculty work closely with students every step of the way. Helping you to an education that  leads to rewarding work after graduation is our goal.

Dr. Thomas Buckley, Associate Clinical Professor of Pharmacy Practice, recently visited Marseille, France where he spoke at the 12th European Public Health Conference concerning "Using technology and cross-cultural teams to deliver trauma-informed medication management." The conference focused on "seeking solutions to our shared challenges as inhabitants of a small planet now facing global threats, from climate change, emerging infections, migration, and the global epidemic of non-communicable diseases." Pictured he stands along the Mediterranean coastline just a block from the conference.

It's the official start of flu season and our students have been on the road with tips and strategies for avoiding getting sick. Pharmacy student Sarah and recent grad/current PGY-1 pharmacy resident at Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, Veronica (2019), recently had the opportunity to present at the 'Well Healed Woman Conference' hosted by Lawrence and Memorial Hospital at the Mystic Marriott.

Last but certainly not least in this week's series on careers in pharmacy - COMMUNITY PHARMACIST - Community pharmacists collaborate with physicians to receive and dispense prescriptions to the general public. They fill patient medications, counsel patients on proper use and storage, advise patients on minor ailments and general health topics, work with insurance companies and administer flu shots and other vaccinations. Community pharmacists are also trained to recognize individuals in crisis and provide direction on where to turn for help. The types of health care provided in drug stores by pharmacists varies from state to state. In Connecticut, for example, pharmacists can now administer long acting antipsychotic medications.
Raise your hand 🙋🏿‍♀️ 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋‍♂️🙋🏿‍♂️🙋🏽‍♂️🙋🏻‍♂️in support of your hard-working local community pharmacist, and their team! #communitypharmacy
