Wegmans School of Pharmacy Students Place in Top 10 of National Competition

Two students from St. John Fisher College’s Wegmans School of Pharmacy recently placed in the top 10 of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) 15th National Clinical Skills Competition, which took place on December 5 at the ASHP’s 45th Midyear Clinical Meeting. Caitlin White (´11) and Tuong Diep (´11) competed against 108 teams from pharmacy schools around the country, a record number of competition participants.

During the competition, administered by ASHP’s Pharmacy Student Forum and sponsored by the ASHP Research and Education Foundation, students demonstrated their skills by assessing patient information and current therapy, identifying and prioritizing drug therapy problems, identifying treatment goals, and recommending a pharmacist’s care plan.

Other activities for pharmacy students included sessions on career planning, pursuing residency training, and opportunities for involvement in ASHP and the ASHP Foundation’s Pharmacy Practice Model Initiative.

For more than 60 years, ASHP has helped pharmacists who practice in hospitals and health systems improve medication use and enhance patient safety. The Society's 30,000 members include pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who practice in inpatient, outpatient, home-care, and long-term-care settings, as well as pharmacy students.
