IACP Student Member Spotlight: Kim Sisouk, PharmD Candidate
IACP is pleased to continue a series of IACP Student Member Spotlights - focusing on the future of our pharmacy compounding profession - our Student Members!
- Tell us about yourself, what pharmacy school are you attending, and what year do you expect to graduate?
Hello, my name is Kim Sisouk and I am a student at Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy in Clinton, S.C., scheduled to graduate in May 2016.
- Why did you choose Pharmacy School?
I chose pharmacy school because there are many career opportunities. When I volunteered at Saigon Pharmacy, I really enjoyed the direct patient interaction and learning things from the pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Also, my grandparents were on multiple medications, and it made me curious to know more about drugs.
- What is your best or most interesting rotation (good or bad experiences welcomed)?
My most interesting rotation was my Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience at Prosperity Drug, an independent pharmacy, where I assisted the pharmacist in compounding chicken flavored phenobarbital tablets for dogs.
- What do you want to do when you graduate?
As of right now, I am interested in pursuing a residency in community pharmacy or ambulatory care and I hope to practice in either of these two settings.
- What do you think the biggest difference in pharmacy practice will be in the next 10 years?
I think the biggest difference in pharmacy practice in the next 10 years will be the implementation of a universal electronic health record.
