TSHP Clinical Skills

2014TSHP_P1ClinicalSkillsCongratulations to Timothy Werkman & Ryan Lampien (pictured, left), FSOP first-year students, for placing first in the Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists Clinical Skills Competition in the P1 division at the Annual Seminar in Houston, held April 11-13. In this competition, each team was consulted on the care of a patient and presented with their medical history, as part of a mock interprofessional collaboration with physicians, in a hospital/health-system setting, in providing direct patient care. The teams had two hours to work up the case and submit their written recommendations, which was followed by an oral defense of their recommendations and fielding questions from the judges. There were eleven teams in the competition from pharmacy schools across the state, so this is quite an honor for these students and for FSOP.
