Patient Counseling Competition

Pharmacy Fair

Each year the College makes a special effort to ensure that students performing clinical rotations in Boise, Las Vegas, Reno & other western sites return to campus for interviews & college activities. Fifty-four students are on rotations this year & anticipate graduation in May 2003. In addition, students in their first-& second-year of the pharmacy program are eager to discuss internship opportunities. Pharamacy Fair is an event that helps students increase their knowledge of career pathways in community, hospital, research & industrial pharmacy while providing an informal setting to discuss what your company has to offer and provides an opportunity for students to interview with potential employers.
