Student Chapter Video Contest!



Create a video with your student chapter to chronicle the future of the role of health-system pharmacists from the present through the next 50 years!   

Videos can be as simple (recorded on your iPhone) or as elaborate (using video editing software) as you want to make them, as long as they are under 5 minutes. Submissions can be done in a creative, original or humorous way (think parodies and commercials!).

The ultimate goal should be to creatively educate the average person on the potential role of health-system or hospital pharmacists and how they impact patient care.

The Evolution of a P4 Student
by Dina Yousif, P4, Chicago State University College of Pharmacy
Published in KeePosted (Volume 40, Issue 10 - December 2014)
The time has finally come. It is the year that every pharmacy student envisions from the very first day of P1 year, and the year that every P3 student impatiently awaits as the feeling of senioritis takes over. It is the day we finally become the seniors on campus, yet we fear not knowing enough as we are thrown out into the real world to face direct patient care and clinical practice. As I reflect back to my didactic courses, I can confidently say that Chicago State University College of Pharmacy has equipped me with a plethora of tools to succeed in various pharmacy settings... To read the full article, visit KeePosted Volume 40 Issue 10.
