Sooo, right now, AS WE SPEAK, I am writing up a case for my Therapeutics class. Let’s talk about how that works.
In Therapeutics case conference, you show up with your little case book and sit down with a group of your peers. There are two conference leaders (who are PharmD’s or greater!) who help guide you through the case of the week. Then, your group works through all of the options for treating the case taking into account lots and lots of considerations.
This is the type of pharmacy stuff that I really like! You look at a fake patient and his/her fake drug problems, then you look at his/her disease state and figure out what needs to be changed or added to the drug therapy. It’s kind of a long process at this point, but I like having to look at a lot of different angles to things, and checking drug databases helps.
Anyway, there’s a big chart that we have to fill out and turn in the following week for a grade that outlines our care plan for the patient. It can be tricky being sure to include every single detail, but it gets easier once you do a few of them!
So, did I mention that ALL OF OUR EXAMS are Monday-Wednesday? When we found out, we looked like this:
Thanks, CuteOverload. You always know just how I feel!
