Students interested in experiencing pharmacy work can attend East Tennessee State University Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy’s second annual summer day camp, “Gatton Pharmacy Footprints,” on June 3-7. Application deadline is May 3.

The camp is open to rising high school juniors, seniors and college freshmen. Other levels may be considered on an individual basis.

Activities include learning about the pharmacy profession from Gatton faculty; touring local health care facilities and pharmacies; conducting patient assessment procedures; discovering pharmacy compounding techniques; and practicing pharmacotherapy on human simulators.

“We are very excited for this year’s pharmacy camp,” said Joy Hurley, director of the summer camp. “Students not only will get to learn from our experienced faculty in a fun environment, but they can learn the wide range of opportunities a pharmacist can pursue, including hospital, clinical, industry, as well as community pharmacy.”

The total cost of the five-day program is $75, which includes supplies, lunch, transportation to and from practice sites, and a T-shirt. More information and the camp application is available at www.etsu.edu/pharmacycamp. For questions, contact [email protected] or 423-439-6338.
