Pi Kappa Phi to be newest frat on campus
in pharmacy contest
By Jennifer Durand
Juli Jamison, a first-year student at the UH College of Pharmacy, placed first Wednesday in the college's annual Patient Counseling Competition.
"I'm very excited about this honor. The Patient Counseling Competition is a wonderful opportunity for students to apply the skills that they learned in class," Jamison said.
Designed to give pharmacy students one-on-one experience with their patients, the competition consisted of two rounds.
In the first round, participants were given a scenario where they were asked to issue a prescription to a patient. Each participant was given a patient profile and resources to reference drug information.
Students were then asked to counsel patients on drugs they were prescribed. Pharmacy students were judged on the content and style of their counseling sessions.
Thirty-seven students were honored at an awards ceremony at the University Hilton following the event for their performance. Jamison, a first-time participant, won first place in the first round.
She will now proceed to the second, and final, round from March 5 to 9 in San Antonio, Texas. The American Pharmaceutical Association, an information and services provider of pharmacists and pharmacy students, will sponsor the event.
Jamison will compete against other pharmacy colleges in a more complex
