UCSD Medical Center – San Diego, CA The University of California San Diego (UCSD) Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences congratulates Dr. Megan Lang on her accomplishments as an outstanding APPE preceptor. Dr. Lang graduated from the University of Iowa in 2004 and completed an Ambulatory Care Residency in 2006 at UCSD Medical Center. Dr. Lang has been practicing at UC San Diego since 2009. She has been precepting students in a variety of ambulatory settings including a mobile clinic, providing outreach care to the underserved, a hypertension management clinic, and an anticoagulation clinic. As faculty of UC San Diego, we are proud to have Dr. Lang as a preceptor. Thank you! Additionally, Dean Colbert, Dean Taylor, and the School of Pharmacy would like to thank all of our preceptors for their guidance, time and dedication. Dean Colbert Associate Dean Experiential Education Dean Taylor Dean – School of Pharmacy It’s great to be part of the UConn team. Everyone wants to be a Husky! The University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy Robert J. Bepko, Jr., R.Ph. As Director of Professional Services at Norwalk Hospital, Bob Bepko has made an important impact on the development of University of Connecticut pharmacy students on rotation. Bob explains how the experience “opens the eyes of the students who don’t always have institutional experience.” While the opportunity he provides is demanding in nature, it comes with the boon of new understanding about the practice of pharmacy. With all his Husky pride, it is not surprising that Mr. Bepko has recently been invited to serve on the UConn School of Pharmacy Advisory Board. In addition to his commitment to the School’s advisory board, Mr. Bepko engages in many community outreach endeavors. Recently, he participated in a well-attended Career Open House in Bridgeport, CT in order to guide high school seniors towards future career paths. While pharmacy education is not for everyone, he hopes that it will be helpful in opening up students to new possibilities. As a final piece of advice to students who hope to one day become pharmacists, Mr. Bepko describes how “it is critical for any health care professional to maintain their credibility. If you don’t know the answer, then get back to them and give them the right answer.” Although the environment in which he works under causes some duress, he says that most students “rise to the occasion.” Such achievement and personal development on the part of the students reflects a preceptor and a practice that offer indispensable opportunities.
