North Carolina native, Dr. Christensen-Grant spent part of pharmacy school in the United Kingdom and completed two pharmacy residencies in Indiana and Texas. He chose phar macy because he wanted a career that both challenged him and gave him the ability to work with people directly. During pharmacy school, he knew that he wanted to become a clinical faculty member because he had a passion for men toring others to discover and pursue their goals. He now teaches students in their first and second year of pharmacy school. He advises student organizations and works with Utah’s state pharmacy organizations to advance the profession of pharmacy. This has been his path in pharmacy, and he cannot wait to help prospective students discover their paths.

MEHREEN HASAN PharmD Class of 2024 “The unique layout of the classroom has made approaching the professors easier. This has helped me build strong relation ships with each of my professors and has positively affected the way I learn and the way I perform academically.

BRITTANY HARNICHER PharmD Class of 2021 “This continuous cycle of learning and addressing areas of weakness has cultivated skills that I have found useful for succeeding in both the classroom and in practice as a student pharmacist.”

INSIDE THE Student Perspectives of the Roseman Six-Point 10

NATHAN HEGER PharmD Class of 2022 “I enjoy the fact that we start our rotations early on in our education. We become more confident in our ability to counsel patients as we learn about the medications.”

“There were times when some materials were difficult to grasp, and the collaborative learning sessions were a good opportunity for me to ask colleagues what they think of the subject matter, reinforcing my under standing. Learning does not just come from listening, and the active engagement helped me learn more efficiently.”

“Competency-based Education has helped me become better. The pressure to meet these standards is uncomfortable, but there is no growth in the comfort zone and I am happy to have a program push me and form me into a competent practitioner.”

“The ability to focus on one subject and delve deep into the mechanisms and med ications, or the laws and regulations, has really changed my opinion on education. It has been really beneficial to me to not have to focus on several subjects at a time.”

Roseman’s College of Pharmacy and CVS Health have joined to raise awareness of pharmacy careers and increase the number of Hispanic/Spanish-speaking applicants to the college’s Doctor of Pharmacy program. The CVS Health Spanish Pathway program provides a unique opportunity for Hispanic/Spanish-speaking undergraduate students to learn about pharmacy education and careers, and establish a pipeline of Spanish speaking students to enter the field of pharmacy with a desire to serve the Hispanic community.

I chose to be part of the CVS Health Spanish Pathway Program to make a difference in the Spanish speaking community. It is no secret that Spanish speakers are well underrepresented in the health community and I want to make a difference. Since starting the pathway program, I feel like I am making a difference. Throughout my rotations, I have witnessed the impact that I have towards the Spanish speaking community. I have had numerous experiences in which I have been able to help Spanish speaking patients. I am not just making a difference as a future pharmacist, but also helping inspire future generations.

Jose Garcia CVS Health Spanish Pathway Student PharmD Class of 2022

My favorite experience while being a part for the CVS Health Spanish Pathway Program is being on rotations at CVS pharmacies with primarily Spanish speaking patients. It is always amazing to help Spanish speaking patients understand their medications and provide the best healthcare services not only to Spanish speaking patients but all patients. There have been many experiences when I have seen the joy in Spanish speaking patients’ faces. It really is amazing to see their faces light up when they see that there is someone speaking Spanish in the pharmacy. WHY APPLY?

I feel like it is important to be a part of the CVS Health Spanish Pathway Program because there is a large population of Spanish speaking patients. Most of these patients experience a language barrier with their health providers including their pharmacist. Due to this, most of these patients are taking their medications incorrectly or some of them don’t take them at all. This is because they don’t fully understand their medications because of that language barrier. For this reason, it is important to raise awareness and get more Spanish speaking students into the pharmacy field.

JUST GO FOR IT

It is a wonderful experience and opportunity to be part of the CVS Health Spanish Pathway Program. The program offers more than just rotations in predominantly Spanish speaking CVS pharmacies. It offers opportunities to network and establish a well-rounded base for when you graduate. In addition, I know sometimes it is scary because of all the things going on with pharmacy school but it is 100% doable. So, if you are interested in applying, just go for it!

The Future of Pharmacy I envision pharmacists being able to prescribe and practice independently in the primary care setting in the next ten years. I also envision pharmacists expanding their roles in ambulatory care and using telemedicine to conduct patient visits.

Student Memories

There have been many students in my career that made a lasting impression on me. These are the students who give my annual flu shot (I taught them immunization), who became my faculty colleague, and the pharmacists at local pharmacies. When I interact with them, I feel proud and accomplished.

Why I Love Teaching My favorite aspect of being in the classroom is engaging students in learning, and discussing new research leading to drug development and therapeutics. When I see the excitement of learning and application of knowledge in our students that makes my day.

I chose Roseman because of the emphasis we place on active learning in the classroom. There are so many things in place that support this, such as the hexagonal classroom design to put students close to their faculty, attached breakout rooms with monitors to see and hear what’s going on in the main classroom, and student teams purposefully created based on each person’s strengths.

Why I Chose Roseman

DR. TRANG (SUSAN) NGUYEN DR. TYLER ROSE

Why I Love Teaching I love being in the classroom, whether it is in-person or virtual. I love taking the content I am teaching and making it relatable and fun to learn. I enjoy having engaged students and seeing the proverbial lightbulb click when students understand a concept.

The Future of Pharmacy It is an exciting time for pharmacy as pharmacist roles begin to transition from dispensing and counseling to greater patient care, such as medication management, immunizations, and even prescribing.

What is not to like? Roseman’s innovative model helps faculty incorporate instructional elements that might otherwise be ignored, but have long been known to enhance student learning, such as formative assessment and peer-to-peer teaching.

Why I Chose Roseman Working at Roseman has provided me with an opportunity to study and teach science in a highly practical, health-centered environment, which is intellectually stimulating and enjoyable.

Roadrunners are also considered Medicine Birds by many Native American tribes in the southwest. The Hopi and other Pueblo tribes believed that the Roadrunner was a medicine bird that could ward off negative energy, and Roadrunner feathers were even used to decorate the cradles of their children to protect them.

To Native American tribes in Mexico, it was considered good luck to see a Roadrunner. That tradition holds true today, for every healthcare organization considers it good luck to hire a Roseman roadrunner! as a Roadrunner

Rosey the Roadrunner embodies the visual representation of Roseman, reflecting its history, culture and character – especially what is believed to be the defining characteristics of our students and alumni. Roadrunners are indigenous to Nevada and parts of Utah, in fact, they’re frequently seen running through the parking lot of the Henderson campus!

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS

What I liked the most about attending pharmacy school at Roseman was the ability to participate in the extracurricu lar organizations and groups that are available. I became a member of a professional pharmacy fraternity called Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity Inc. I was able to have so many wonderful experiences and gain important skills in leadership, planning, and organization. Not only that, but I met wonderful people and built lifelong friendships. I will cherish my time there forever!

IMPACTFUL PROFESSORS

Roseman prepared me for success through their required learn ing experiences in the field, which really helped acclimate me to life in the pharmacy. Also, Roseman provided amazing profes sors that encouraged me and gave me important tips, such as treating every day in rotation like a job interview. That is how I landed the job I have today! In addition, Roseman provided career and networking opportunities through career fairs. I was able to get tons of great practice interviewing and connecting with others. Most importantly, Roseman really teaches with an emphasis on patient-centered care, which has absolutely helped me in my career to be the best pharmacist I can.

Her Mark ROADRUNNER

My two favorite professors are Dr. Rose and Dr. Adamson. They are both very organized and clear with their material and what they expect, and they both make learning enjoyable through their jokes, positive attitudes, and enthusiasm. They also really advocate for the students – especially those who go above and beyond in their desire to learn and grow.

WHY ROSEMAN?

I chose to pursue my education at Roseman because I wanted to attend school in Utah. I loved that it was only a 3-year program and I was thrilled that I could get started with my career faster. I was also really intrigued by the block scheduling of classes and the learning format.

“There is so much opportunity for learning in this field and I am excited to make a difference in it. I know that my progression in this field of study would not be possible without inspiring teachers, researchers, and supportive community members like you.”

It was rewarding to be out on rotations and realize that I had learned something that was beneficial to my patients; I had gained the power to help better someone’s life with the knowledge I got from pharmacy school.
