A lot has been happening in pharm school lately, since I am now in my last quarter of didactic learning! 5 more weeks to go and then real life *tear, sob, whine* ..then off goes the young birdy, outta the nest, and onto a year of experiential education aka pharmacy rotations. Here are my latest pharmacy school achievements and other cool pharmacy things:
#1 Being all grown up
and so darn cool to be on rotation at Rush Hospital
|Pharmacy Rotation at Rush University Medical Center|
Right smack downtown in Chicago!
I am soooo excited to be able to learn at this hospital, alongside some of the best clinicians. The 1hour 40 minute drive downtown on the first day was not fun, but this week my plan is to get on the highway before 6am (before all highways leading to Chicago become standstill) and get there by 7am and just study for an hour and a half...until I meet with my preceptor at 8:45am and then go on rounds at 9am.
#2 Even more cool with my Rush badge.
OMG... This was probably the most exciting part of our first day on the rotation site.
(Okay, okay, hearing about what our preceptor does and how he helps to save lives of critically ill and/or dying patients because he is a CCU (Critical Care Unit) pharmacist was even cooler.
