My long-term professional goal as a pharmacist is to be a patient advocate, focusing on patient care and progression. I truly believe the role of a pharmacist in the community is to be a patient advocate, friend and educator. My efforts to achieve this goal started when I began studying and researching new techniques on how to utilize a variety of medications to maximize the benefits of the drug regimen for patients with minimum unpleasant side effects. I took a training course and became certified in Medication Therapy Management which increased my interest in patient care. I have been able to perform drug utilization reviews, counsel, and build relationships that has gained the trust of the patients. Ideally, I would love to practice in a patient-centered community setting so that I could provide patient-centered care that is specific to each patient and their medical needs. With that being said, II am certain that this intense passion will aid me in becoming successful in achieving my goal of becoming a well-rounded pharmacist.
