Campbell University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (HNK, TPY); Buies Creek High School (POW)
To establish a mentor program between current pharmacy students and those interested in the career of pharmacy.
The program was created to inspire and encourage young men and women to achieve their goals and pursue a career in pharmacy. Pharmacy students and high school students signed up to participate in the program. The number of participants was limited to 15 for this pilot program. Activities were planned throughout the year in order to allow the mentors and mentees to interact in various capacities. Activities included: shadow days in pharmacy classes, career awareness day and tutoring. Once a quarter, student topic discussions were led by the pharmacy students to increase students’ skills in communicating and collaborating. Fifteen high school young men and women signed up to participate, along with 20 pharmacy students (5 students had 2 mentors). The pilot is set to end May 2013. Both mentor and mentee satisfaction with the program and suggestions will be obtained.
To be presented at the National Meeting in New Orleans, LA.
