Student Perspective: Leno and Whitney

The patient care process, especially in our current healthcare system, can seem cold and sterile.  As healthcare providers, we idolize clean cut solutions to very complex problems.  Problems like homelessness, food insecurity, and abuse do not fall in our cookie-cut solution system well. Here at Health Partners, we value a warmer interaction with our patients… ( read more )

Student Perspective: Brianne and Dylan

The month of June could be described as frantic at best.  Our Country and community continues to be tested from all directions and the Clinic has done our best to provide those in need a safe and caring space to turn to.  That certainly would have been impossible without the hands of our two pharmacy… ( read more )

Student Perspective: Matt

For us here at the Clinic, we always see having our new students as a treat.

Student Perspective: Haley and Mikala

In a month when we are thoughtful about what makes us thankful, we at the Clinic can say, without a doubt, that the students we get to work with fit on this list!  During the month of November, pharmacy externs, Haley and Mikala were two of those students that make a great impact on the… ( read more )

Student Perspective: Kaitlin and Kweku

During the month of October, the Clinic hosted externs Kweku, from Cedarville University, and Kaitlin, from Ohio Northern University, as a part of their final year of schooling.  Often, the Clinic hopes for impact in these relationships.  We hope to impact the student in a way that will better their career, and, we pray, the… ( read more )

The month of September brought the Clinic not one but two pharmacy externs!  Erin from Ohio Northern University and Abby from Cedarville University, spent the last 30 days testing their clinical skills out on our unique patient population.  They were tasked with seeing the humanity in healthcare and getting back to the roots of medicine. … ( read more )
