The Last Summer of All Time

My last year of classes has begun! It has gone incredibly fast, but I am so excited to finish coursework and get out into practice.

What does a 2nd/3rd year pharmacy student do during their summer break?

This summer (being possibly my last summer ever!?) was quite amazing. I started my summer off with my IPPE (Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience) a three week rotation at United Hospital in Saint Paul. I had the most amazing experience shadowing a different pharmacist in nearly every area of practice every day, conducting a huge research project as part of my safety project, working on various other projects,  and one of the coolest experiences of my life was watching an open heart/aortic valve replacement literally right in front of me (geeking out)!!! I was lucky enough to have one of our Duluth counterparts Kauchee on rotation with me which made it extra enjoyable! A special thanks to Dr. Mandt and the entire Pharmacy Dept. at United hospital!


My project and presentation!

Only about a week after my rotation we were back at United Hospital…. For the birth of our baby girl!

After that the rest of summer was spent working at the hospital (with Dustin/fellow blogger!) before ending summer with a family vacation back to Colorado and California (of course Disneyland!).

Yeah, that's Mcqueen.

Yeah, that’s Mcqueen.


Go Broncos!

We got back just in time to start this next semester. Third year should be full of fun activities, professional meetings, and classes!

Until next time!

    Nice!… in every way possible–professionally, relaxation-wise, and family-wise.
