Post-graduate program: Pharmacy School at Oregon State College of Pharmacy
O.D. graduation year: June 2019
What are you doing now, career-wise (or what do you plan to do after graduating)?
Currently I am attending Pharmacy School at Oregon State College of Pharmacy. After graduating I plan to stay in Oregon and practice Pharmacy. I have not completely decided if I am going to do a residency or not, but I am currently leaning towards Ambulatory Care Pharmacy, or Community Pharmacy.
What is one thing that you really appreciated about our program at Oregon Tech?
I really enjoyed how involved all of my professors were. I remember studying in the lounge/hallway of DOW and my professors would stop and ask if I had any questions, sometimes even if I didn’t have a class from them that term. All of my professors knew my name, and how I was doing in their class, and were very eager to offer any assistance if it were needed. I believe the small class sizes greatly attributed to the professor’s familiarity with all the students in their classes. In addition, the number of students in our specific major was also relatively small which made it very easy to form meaningful study groups!
What is one piece of advice that you would give to a student in our program today?
Study as if you are committing the knowledge to your memory for forever, not just for the upcoming exam! Do not just cram for your exam, actively learn and study the material the courses give you, trust me it will come back to you later on in graduate or professional school. Additionally, this study habit will come in handy later on!
