Going out with a bang!

So what have I been up to during my LAST SEMESTER OF CLASSES EVER?

Besides the normal busy work that classes, working, and organizational clubs come with I have been working vigorously on my Pharm D. IV Research Project. I am conducting a retrospective study comparing two protocols used to treat a variety of cancers in patients at Fairview. It has been a very busy process with IRB, study design, and the literature review. I hope to finish the project within the next few months and hopefully be able to publish the results within the year. I get to work with a couple of our Oncology Pharmacist’s as well as learn a lot more about statistical software than I ever thought I would!

Besides this I have been trying to make sure I am as ready as possible for rotations. I cannot believe I start rotations in 4 months! I am very nervous, but very excited! I am very pleased with how the rotation selection process worked out and I got most of the areas I was interested in. Here are my rotations as a sample for what you may expect. I will say this varies greatly by what you select as your preferences. I know my fellow classmates that are interested more in ambulatory or retail have very different looking rotations.
