Today we have our P4 student, Emily Henningsen, a PharmD
Candidate from Preston, Iowa who is looking at both ambulatory care
and clinical community pharmacy opportunities. She’s especially
excited to help patients with their continuity of care. She chose
an academic rotation to impact students and learn what goes on
behind the scenes as one develops courses and
- Everyone’s leadership road is a little different; tell us what
you are doing now and how you got there.
- You’re almost a quarter done with your rotations, we’ve talked
a little about the ticking clock for this year, how do you manage
with job / rotation / life / NAPLEX studying balance?
- What’s the hardest part of the three years before your APPE
rotations? (two weeks)
- You come from Preston, Iowa, which is a smaller to town. We’ve
had Brandon Gerleman on who just graduated and is in Winterset and
is very pro rural town, tell me about your divide between current
opportunities in the profession and underserved communities?
- You can’t really know what kind of teacher a person is going to
be before they get in front of students. I seen you excel teaching
a cohort, a large classroom, and working with students one-on-one,
what in your background at Iowa or otherwise do you think made you
a good teacher?
- Many P4s are essentially homeless, how do you take advantage of
the freedom that comes along with moving from one side of the state
to the other because you went from Eastern Iowa to Central to
Eastern Iowa back to Central Iowa then you bounce from Eastern
Central Iowa to Eastern Iowa, anyway, you get the picture.
- What are you most looking forward to right now?
- What’s it like to be at in the front of the classroom?
- What advice do you have for a student who wants to learn to
teach that you wish you had known?
- How did it feel when students started coming directly to you
for advice and help with their class?
- You’ve made YouTube videos to help fellow students with their
NAPLEX prep, what’s it like to get 1500 views?
- What did you learn from interviewing another P4 from another
- What blanket advice do you have for someone wanting to get to
where you are?
- How do you prefer people contact you?
