Saturday, May 21st is Welcome Day for all incoming P1s! We are so excited to see you! This day is a great day to meet your fellow classmates, some faculty and staff, and hear from some peers. If you are looking for what you can expect for the day, continue reading!
You will be able to meet some amazing people! One is Dr. James McAuley who is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, and he will teach you all about anti-epileptic drugs in P&T! You will also meet Dr. Donald Sullivan who is Director of Professional Experiential Programs and he will be your law professor. For Welcome Day, Dr. Sullivan will be giving you a sample class and talk about the health requirements. Joe Orozco, Director of Student Affairs, will be there as well to go over the curriculum! He can help answer all your questions towards this. You will also get another chance to talk with some students, so come prepared with any questions you may have!
We won’t just be in Parks Hall all day, so bring some shoes you can walk in. 🙂 You will be going to The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Center where you will get a hospital tour. You will also head to the Ohio Union, where you will hear from an Alumni Spotlight!
It will be a long day, but it will be a great start to your PharmD education as well as a time to learn what the next four years will be like! So please come! Be there at 8:30am, and be ready to eat breakfast with Brutus!!
Last year was our first Welcome Day, and we had an awesome turnout. I can tell you that many others and myself are so excited to meet and get to know all of you! If you have any questions at all, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
