UF to Hold 14th Annual Pharmacy Summer Camp
University of Findlay invites high school juniors and seniors to attend the 14th Annual Pharmacy Summer Camp.
“We are pleased to offer this in-person opportunity for students to do some meaningful career exploration and have a lot of fun while doing so!” said Debra Parker, Pharm.D., dean of the college of pharmacy. “By popular demand, we have expanded our offerings to allow for two choices for camp this year. We will offer one camp June 20-23 and the other camp July 25-28.”
The overnight camps will take place on the University of Findlay campus. All meals and snacks will be provided through the University’s dining services. Each camp has availability for 50 students on a first come, first serve basis. Cost to attend is $350 per student and early registration is recommended as the available spaces fill quickly. All facial-covering and physical distancing guidelines, as outlined by the Oiler Start Safe & Stay Safe Plan, will be observed.
This is a unique opportunity for high school students explore career options, learn about the role of pharmacists in the healthcare system, and get to know University of Findlay faculty in the College of Pharmacy.
College of Pharmacy faculty will lead hands-on experiential learning sessions and learn about medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, compounding, and research. Activities will include:
- Medicinal chemistry
- Pharmacy Calculations and Pharmacokinetics
- Hospital Pharmacy
- Gaming and Pharmacy
“During this experience, students get to learn about the profession of pharmacy, career options, the University of Findlay, and the surrounding community,” Dr. Parker explained. “They work with current students who have been in their shoes, and who provide valuable advice. Campers also interact with faculty who are experts in their field. It’s such a winning combination.”
An additional benefit of attending camp is that seniors are given the opportunity to interview for Findlay’s unique Pharmacy Program, which is one of the few pharmacy programs in the country that includes a direct-entry pathway in the program from high school.
Dr. Parker stated “Year after year, students tell us how much this camp has helped them figure out what they want to study when they finish high school – and where they want to do it!”
