We collaborated with APhA-ASP to guide pharmacy students through the DND courses. Students learned the course timeline from the fourth year fall semster to the fifth year fall semester, what subjects are covered in each course, and exam formats. At the end of the presentation, Rho Chi members answered questions and gave advice to the younger students.
Residency & Fellowship Showcase Workshop
Pharmacy students learned about residencies and fellowships from guest panelists. There also was an opportunity provided to network with the guests, who spoke about their experiences in their organizations and their programs. The panelists gave great advice on how to be marketable for jobs at certain places. Furthermore, they answered students' questions about how their typical day is like, who they interact with, and many other questions.
Rho Chi Coffeehouse Chat: Alumni Edition
We provided students with an opportunity to network with St. John's University pharmacy alumni. Away from the constraints of classrooms and lectures, these events allowed student pharmacists to intermingle with their peers and professors in a more laid-back environment. This event was held online via Webex. During the events, an alum is assigned to a certain breakout room, and groups of students rotate about every fifteen minutes to speak to different alumni. A large volume of discussions were about research experiences, future career opportunities, and other topics relating to pharmacy.
