Would you ever think as a pharmacy resident that you would have the opportunity to be involved in the care of a patient who received a second chance at life through a triple-organ transplant? I am guessing you answered no. I would have answered this question similarly, but then I discovered the endless possibilities in solid-organ transplant...

As a final-year student pharmacist studying at Wake Forest Baptist Health, I want to share what I found fulfilling this year in hopes of emboldening others to search for similar opportunities. Wake Forest Baptist Health invites select student pharmacists from various...

Some folks are beginning the job hunt in hopes of landing their first pharmacist position, and others are looking for nontraditional pharmacist jobs. This is an exciting time of year, as we are...

The spring of your final year of pharmacy school is game time! You are putting all the pieces together—sometimes more than once—and landing that job you have worked so hard for. So,...

I ambitiously tried sports in middle school because all my friends played, and after a couple years and a valiant effort, I decided that they were not for me. I figured there had to be something that would challenge and excite me in the same way that my friends were challenged and excited by sports. During my first...
