Week 6: Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah by Hillary Aphaisuwan
Week 6: Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah
May 12 – May 16

For this last entry, I have the pleasure of being able to reflect on both my entire time at AACP and also my time as a pharmacy student.  It’s my last day of my very last rotation and in two weeks, I’ll be graduating with my Doctor of Pharmacy degree!  It’s unreal, actually.  Not only did these six weeks fly by, but these three years of pharmacy school passed in a blink of an eye.  One thing I have learned throughout the course of pharmacy school is to seize opportunities as they come and to experience as much as you can while you can.  At the beginning of pharmacy school, I could have never seen myself living in a state clear across the other side of the country for rotation.  If I never took that chance to apply, this experience with AACP would have been missing from my life.
It was truly an honor to be selected to complete an association management rotation with AACP.  I always have envisioned myself as a professor in the future so being able to experience a new realm of pharmacy education was extremely refreshing.  Not only did I have the opportunity to learn more about the association, but the best thing was that I was able to experience it around an amazing group of people.  The AACP staff have taught me that the success for any association, or any project for that matter, is to have a strong team.  I’m grateful to be able to take the words of wisdom about teamwork and leadership from those that I have met here and apply it to the next stage of my life.
