It was a lot of fun and a great experience and networking event.We attended many CE’s (continuing education) programs where we learned more about Cardiology, Pain Management, and a presentation from the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement. I’m so happy about the experience and that I branched out and met new students and pharmacists.

When your attending college make sure your always aware of the opportunists around you because there is always so much that you can do!

<![CDATA[New Year, Same Me ]]>http://blogs.admissions.buffalo.edu/kateylyne/new-year-same-me/#comments Sat, 02 Jan 2016 17:00:26 +0000 http://blogs.admissions.buffalo.edu/kateylyne/?p=155 Happy 2016 Everybody :)

I can’t believe it’s already 2016, time is really flying by. This year is going to start off great with this Spring Semester. Fall was CRAZY but now I feel more prepared for this next semester and what’s ahead. I am going to be attending my first conference through pharmacy school, earn by first elective credits by working as a chair on the Poison Prevention Committee, and attend my class’s “halfway dance”. I am officially half way through my learning part of pharmacy school, completing 1.5/3 years, since the 4th year is a full year of rotations. It’s so nice to have a break and be home to be with family and friends. Hope everyone is enjoying it as much as I am!

<![CDATA[Thanksgiving Break ]]>http://blogs.admissions.buffalo.edu/kateylyne/thanksgiving-break/#comments Tue, 24 Nov 2015 18:54:59 +0000 http://blogs.admissions.buffalo.edu/kateylyne/?p=152 It’s finally that time in the semester where we get to take a break and RELAX! I am so excited to be headed home later today to see my family and friends, eat a lot of food, and recharge my battery before the end of the semester.

This morning we had a practice counseling session where we had to counsel a fake patient (a teaching assistant) on  an osteoporosis medication. It was very straightforward and something I enjoy because it is very hands on. I enjoy how the pharmacy school teaches us things that are really important and clinically based that we will be using for the rest of our careers.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
