Pharmacy Summer Camp Sample Agenda
Here is what you can expect in our busy camp schedule.
Career Speaker: Pharmacy and the pharmaceutical sciences are careers full of promise and opportunity. The speaker will share personal experiences and observations of the profession. Question and answer time to follow.
Zoo Field Trip: The Toledo Zoo’s animal collection consists of thousands of mammals, fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and invertebrates, representing 750+ exotic species from all over the world. From polar bears to penguins, from king cobras to corals, if you have a favorite animal, chances are you will find it here. Campers learn how pharmacy plays a role in zoological care.
Amway Lab Day: Students learn about Amway, its business profile, main products and international sites. Later, students will complete two hands-on activities led by Amway researchers, which will provide them with an insight into how personal care products are formulated and tested.
Pharmacy Math Mystery: Martin Ohlinger, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice. Use mathematic skills to solve a pharmacy mystery. This presentation introduces the field of pharmacokinetics, a subject of study within the Doctor of Pharmacy degree program. Bring a scientific calculator.
The Future of Pharmacy is Already Here! An Introduction to Medication Therapy Management: Sharrel Pinto, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Healthcare Administration, Director of Pharmaceutical Care and Outcomes Research Laboratory. Pharmacists play an active role in helping patients manage chronic diseases, like diabetes. Dr. Pinto introduces students to MTM and discusses the effectiveness of pharmacy-led diabetes management programs.
Compounding Lab: Sai Boddu, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Pharmaceutics. Compounding is a science and an art. In this lab, you will compound a dosage form that meets the individual needs of a patient. This lab introduces the compounding course required of all Doctor of Pharmacy students at The University of Toledo.
UT Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center: This high fidelity patient simulator lab is utilized by multiple medical disciplines to develop students’ clinical and critical thinking skills during realistic patient care scenarios. Our tour of the IISC will highlight opportunities for pharmacy students’ simulation training and the incorporation of pharmacy students into interprofessional training scenarios.
Student Shadowing (Pharmacy Camp): Students will spend the morning independently or in groups of two at a Toledo-area pharmacy to observe first-hand the work of pharmacists in retail, hospital and institutional care settings. Following the shadowing, students will meet in small groups for a discussion of their observations. Professional dress required – see packing list.
“How UT CPPS Students Gain Professional Experience:” The Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE) and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE) are designed to provide active learning and an extension of the information learned throughout the Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum. All Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences students must complete a 10-week internship placement at the end of the third year of study. The internship is designed to provide practical, real-world experience in the student's field.
CSI: Toledo: Fred Williams, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Pharmacology; Jill Trendel, Ph.D., Research Associate. Examine the evidence lifted from a mock crime scene deep in the basement of the UT Pharmacy Building. This experience introduces students to laboratory techniques and technology used in forensic investigations, like those on the popular CBS series. Narrow a list of suspects based on analysis of scientific data. Next, hear how the same techniques and technology are applied to medical and pharmaceutical research like that pursed by graduates of the bachelor of science in pharmaceutical sciences degree program.
College Presentation: We’ll wrap up the camp with a slideshow of photos from camp, and begin your journey to UT with information on application and admission to the UT College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Refreshments will be served.
