As of this May, Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy’s inaugural class has begun its advanced fourth-year rotations. Each student will do nine, month-long pharmacy practice rotations over the course of one year, with four required rotations (Advanced Community, Advanced Institutional, Acute Care, and Ambulatory Care) and five elective rotations in an area or areas of their specific interest. The students are in a variety of local, regional, and national settings; with a few students doing rotations as far away as Alaska and Hawaii. Our second group of five students are gearing up for their July rotation in Maui.

Students are getting hands-on experience with the mentorship of professional pharmacists in such diverse settings as Veterans Affairs facilities, free clinics, teaching hospitals, retail and independent pharmacies, heathcare administrative organizations, and animal hospitals. Applying the knowledge they have accumulated over the past three years of their pharmacy education, these students are taking the final steps toward becoming the new generation of pharmacists and healthcare team members.

Diabetes Day Camp

PC Pharmacy School students helped with the Self Regional Annual Diabetes Day Camp at the YMCA in Greenwood, SC. This day camp was for children with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. 

Children got to do rope and rock climbing among other physical activities at the YMCA while also learning best practices on how to manage their diabetes through educational games and instructions. 

Camp activities taught kids life-saving information such as: meal planning, Insulin administration, blood glucose monitoring, medication maintenance, and the life skills necessary to deal with diabetes.
