    Dispensed as written: Fingerprints


    Tim Kaylor was my first student pharmacist at Thompson Pharmacy. Tim had experienced computer skills with our pharmacy software, and was an amazing pair of hands when I made the transition from my previous employer to Thompson Pharmacy. When I see how well my pharmacy operates, I often think back to the chaos and clutter I walked into that first week and how instrumental a student pharmacist was in bring order to my new workplace.

    My current student Tim Heath is responding to the needs of a local doctor by researching extensively the use of probiotics for Clostridium difficile infections induced by antibiotic therapy. He will be publishing his work in our warehouse’s weekly newsletter. Like all the students before Tim, these students come with a skill set that complements nicely with the skills of a “seasoned” pharmacist. They are a valuable part of what we do, and some cases they have impacted patients for many years after their five-week rotation. 

    I’m glad I don’t need to follow them around with the paper towels and Windex… these are the fingerprints we all love to see!
