First Day of Clinic

May 30, 2016

     Whoohoo! First day of clinic done! As a pharmacy student, I was extremely nervous about how the pharmacy was going to run. With tons of donated medications, a slew of new prescription medications, we had a lot to keep track of. We saw 115 patients today, with the majority of them being the in the morning. I definitely got to experience the crazy rush that happens in any pharmacy when you have 30 scripts coming in at once. In addition, counseling patients took much longer because we had to use translators. At the end of the day, I was really impressed with how well the undergrad, nursing, and medical students were willing to jump in and lend a hand at any time. Hopefully we can help even more patients while keeping up with the supply and demand of medications throughout the rest of the trip.
