The goal of this scholarship program is to strengthen the recipient’s skills and commitment to a career in academic pharmacy through participation in programming and activities at the 2012 AACP Annual Meeting and Seminars. Gomez, under faculty mentorship provided by Dr. Rajul Patel ’01, ‘06, was one of 75 recipients.
“My enthusiasm to pursue pharmacy academia has been growing significantly and this scholarship will build upon it. It will provide me with an opportunity to gain more skills and learn from those already successful in the profession. I am excited to be a part of this program with Dr. Patel as my mentor because I know this will be a valuable experience as it opens a new door into my future,” said Gomez.
