Lisa is currently a pharmacy student at Wayne State University and a pharmacy intern at Target. She describes a typical day: I am currently in my last year of pharmacy school. This year will consist of spending seven different 6 week long rotations at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI. On each rotation I will be getting hands-on experience in different aspects of hospital pharmacy practice. (Making IVs, calculating medication doses, rounding with medical teams, etc). At Target, I fill prescriptions, answer patient questions and counsel patients on how to take their medications safely and effectively.
Lisa shares how the MRC has benefited her: A way that MRC benefited my life was that gave me a lot of skills and experience in being a critical scientific thinker. This has really been an asset as I continue my education. Also, I met people in the program that I still keep in contact with to this day.
Words of wisdom from Lisa: Don’t let worrying about/planning for the future consume too much of your present. Don’t be afraid to take a class completely unrelated to your major.
Lisa passes on some advice: Be truly present in whatever you do.
