    • Work experiences: Please detail any internship, technician, research, or other work experiences you held during pharmacy school. Amount of hours weekly/monthly is extremely valuable to showcase (especially if done during the academic year) and the types of activities you were expected to complete. 
    • Research experience: Please list longitudinal and rotation research experiences and what activities you completed. This could be a full research project or a medication/drug use evaluation. Showcasing your role in those projects is super helpful- were you the primary investigator? Did you help with data collection? Did you write/submit an IRB? How involved were you with the study design? 
    • Writing experiences: This could include manuscripts and publications. This can also include newsletters, web articles, monographs, policies, procedures, guidelines, and commentaries. Please include any publications with the corresponding references of the journal it was published in or accepted/submitted to.  
    • Presentations: This includes poster and platform presentations at a local, state, or national conference. This can also include presentations given on rotation, like a policy at P&T you developed, a nursing/medical provider in-service, or a presentation given to preceptors/students/class. This doesn't typically include topic discussions or journal clubs completed on rotation. 
    • Leadership: Please include all roles you held in professional organizations, including executive board and chair membership and what activities you completed. 
    • Volunteer/community service: List any volunteer or community service activities you completed during pharmacy school.
