As I’m rounding out my first year of pharmacy school, I figured that I would make a blog post about how my P1 year was.
Overall, it was a really good year. I learned a lot about myself and my study habits and learned a lot in class. I was able to achieve getting all A’s and 1 B throughout the course of the whole year. I was able to give myself time to relax as well.
I started research with one of my professors. I met with a resident of a retirement community through the Longitudinal Care Experience and truly got to know her as a person. I also learned how to better communicate with patients.
It was a difficult year, but I know that the next few years are going to be even harder, so I’m hoping to adjust to them well.
Here’s to starting off my summer community rotation with a bang and having a great time.
