Rising P2’s: Be a Pharmacy Team Peer Mentor!

I hope you are enjoying your summer, learning at your IPPE, and taking a bit of a rest!

I am facilitating the organization of the Pharmacy Team Peer Mentor program for the School of Pharmacy. As you may recall, last year your team was assigned a P2 mentor during orientation. Working closely with Dr. Olenak and the faculty advisors, peer mentors provide guidance and support during the P1 year and beyond. In addition, Dr. Ference and I look to the mentors for some guidance and advice in the Foundations course.

If you think you may be interested in serving as a peer mentor it is time to make application! Please send me an email with a brief essay of why you want to be a mentor and why you think you'd be great at it. In addition to a great essay, we will give preference to P2's who can commit to being available during P1 orientation (8/27) and White Coat Ceremony (morning of 9/10). In your e-mail to me, please indicate if you can make these two Sundays.
If you are interested, please respond to me via email (edward.foote@wilkes.edu) by July 3rd.

If you would like to ask questions prior to putting yourself up for grabs, don't hesitate to contact Dr. Olenak or me.
Enjoy the rest of your summer.
Dr. Foote
