Sullivan University College of Pharmacy Team Wins National CompetitionKAM
A team from the Sullivan University College of Pharmacy has won a major national award while competing against some of the top pharmacy schools in the nation.
Competing for just the second time in this event, The Sullivan University College of Pharmacy team of three students and a faculty sponsor won the 2016 national championship in the Sixth Annual Student Pharmacist Compounding Competition, which was held March 19 and 20 at the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy in Los Angeles, CA.
Sullivan students Brianna Combs of New Albany, Ind., Martika Martin of Eubank, Ky., and Rachel Ramsey of Richmond, Ky., along with faculty sponsor Dr. Uyen Le successfully competed against 19 other colleges and schools of pharmacy, including Butler University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, St. Louis College of Pharmacy, Washington State University, State University of New York at Buffalo and the University of Oklahoma.
“We are working to build a culture of professional engagement,” said Sullivan University College of Pharmacy Dean Cindy Stowe. “Actively participating in and using the national competitions available through various pharmacy professional organizations is a way to use co-curricular activities to compliment the curriculum, provide hands-on real world opportunities to practice what is being learned in the classroom and labs.
“It’s also incredibly important,” Dr. Stowe said, “for professional networking for the students and faculty involved.”
