Title: Rising P2s – Interested in becoming a Pharmacy P1 Team Mentor?

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

Applications for the Pharmacy Team Peer Mentor program for the School of Pharmacy are now being accepted. 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. Kristeller and I will 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, please send Mrs. Frail an email with a brief essay of why you want to be a mentor and why you think you'd be a good fit for the program. We will give preference to P2's who can commit to being available during P1 orientation (8/26) and White Coat Ceremony (morning of 9/9). In your e-mail, please indicate if you can make these two Sundays.

If you are interested, please respond to Mrs. Frail via email (bernadette.frail@wilkes.edu) by July 6th. If you would like to ask questions, don't hesitate to contact Dr. Olenak or me.

Enjoy the rest of your summer.
Dr. K. Ference
