Please contact Kim Leadon at 919-966-3023 or firstname.lastname@example.org. P1 students who spend their Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience rotation at the CVS site in West Hartford, CT have the pleasure of working with preceptor Florence Rome. Her unique background allows her to connect with students who have also immigrated to America and she truly appreciates their various cultures. Rome was born in Nigeria, attended high school in Switzerland and moved to America after she graduated. She earned her pharmacy degree from St. John’s University in 1987. At her site, students focus on community practice and become familiar with the tasks involved in the day-to-day life of retail pharmacy. “After they are introduced to the pharmacy’s physical lay-out and our basic procedures, the students work alongside me, according to a plan we devise together for the best learning experience possible,” says Rome. For many of Rome’s foreign students, this rotation is the first opportunity they have to experience a pharmacy setting. Rome enjoys her time with foreign students for cultural reasons as well. She says, “I love training students from throughout the world, and those born abroad are encouraged to share their cultures with my staff and me. We get very excited when we discuss music, food, customs, languages, and did I say food?” She hopes that after their time with her, students will learn how rewarding a profession in retail pharmacy can be and how enjoyable it is to have the opportunity to help people every day. 24 Summer 2013 I heal th system • infuis on UNIVERSITY OF HAWAI’I AT HILO THE DANIEL K.

The Interprofessional rotations are unique in many ways, but one of the most significant differences between IPEs and traditional pharmacy rotations is that they are generally completed under the supervision of a non-pharmacist. Our students have been precepted by nurse practitioners at convenient care clinics, medical staff and clergy at hospices, registered nurses at hospitals and staff at long-term care facilities. All of the facilities and individuals that agreed to accept our pharmacy students, despite the fact that it was something they’d never done, and, in most cases, never even considered doing before we approached them, welcomed our students into their working environments. To this point, the response from both sides has been overwhelmingly positive, and we have our Interprofessional partners to thank for creating a positive educational environment for our students. Therefore, the Roosevelt University College of Pharmacy would like to take this opportunity to thank our Interprofessional Preceptors. We thank them for recognizing how important collaboration among healthcare professionals will be as we look toward improving patient outcomes, and we thank them for sharing their experiences with our students.
