Final day of rotations & pharmacy school!

This is my last day at rxBriefCase, and I want to share my experiences as well as what I learned from this rotation.

mdBriefCase Group Inc. is not your typical placement. It is a non-direct patient care rotation that focuses on providing continuing education for all healthcare professionals. It also provides education for patients, free of charge!

Now, don’t just take this for granted. Medical writing is a form of art. It isn't just about providing the correct and most recent information on a particular topic. It takes a lot of time and effort to perfect each and every sentence, and to ensure that the information is concise and succinct to maintain the readers’ interest.

I realized this while writing for both medSchool For You and eNewsletter on the topics of head lice and uncomplicated UTIs, respectively. I was also fortunate enough to get a behind-the-scenes look at program development and sit in on a few filming sessions. I must say, A LOT of work is put into these CE programs!

I am thankful that these programs are available at my finger tips and will continue to use these programs after I graduate to keep up-to-date with the ever-changing and evolving healthcare landscape, to ensure optimal patient outcomes.

On the second last day of my rotation, I attended the Primary Care Today conference as a representative of mdBriefCase, which provided further insight into mdBriefCase as well as my own future practice.

All in all, an interesting last rotation. And now, I get to put all this learning towards the upcoming exams!
