Batter Up!

I’m Ashu Randhawa, a pharmD student from University of Toronto. Over the next 5 weeks, I’m going to find myself walking the road that so many other pharmacy students have taken before here at mdBriefCase.

It’s shaping up to be a novel experience. I’ve largely had exposure to community pharmacy (with a pinch of hospital, courtesy of my latest rotation), so I’m appreciative of the learning opportunities here. The work seems simple in concept, if not so much in execution; past bloggers have implied that there’s a lot of background work that goes into writing CME. Fortunately, there’s a comprehensive, week-by-week manual and some very friendly staff to guide me through this rotation. If all goes well, you’ll be seeing an eNewsletter and medSchool For You pages from me soon!

My strongest interests in the world of healthcare lie with fitness & diet, obesity and diabetes. There’s something appealing to me about the idea that simple, consistent lifestyle choices have large effects on health. Outside of healthcare, my hobbies include fitness and console gaming.

I also really enjoy reading and writing (mostly fiction), so I’m prepared for the inevitable flow of red corrections that’ll accompany my draft work. Rome wasn’t built in a day, after all.

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to send them my way. Otherwise, stay tuned for more posts!
