UHCOP Students Win Team Competitions, Individual Honors at TSHP Annual Seminar April 12-14 in Frisco

UH College of Pharmacy Pharm.D. students captured several team-based competition titles as well as individual honors, including a statewide leadership post, at the 2019 Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists Annual Seminar April 12-14 in Frisco, Texas.

_The team of first-year Pharm.D. students Duc Huynh and Ricky Huynh-Phan won the P1 Category of the Clinical Skills Competition, which requires each team to develop and present a therapeutic plan for a patient based on information contained in the patient’s chart to a panel of judges. The plan should identify and assess all acute and chronic medical problems, drug-related problems, and health care needs of the patient, and team members must be prepared to explain and defend their assessments and recommendations live to the panel. _

Also bringing home a first-place win in the Leadership Challenge competition was the UHCOP team of Amilda Medina , Eileell Nguyen and Van Nguyen . “Designed to help students further explore their roles as leaders in the healthcare field,” the competition requires teams to submit a 5-10 page action plan for responding to a case scenario involving a hospital-based controlled-substance diversion incident.
