Pros: great educational exposure
Cons: leaving my favorite position as a professional
When I worked there at first, I was the pharmacist in charge of all of the investigational medications and studies conducted on site. When I became a full time employee, my shift was the evening shift.
I compounded the chemotherapy medications for the oncology department in-patients. I also supervised the technicians in the IV room. I was also responsible for maintaining the perpetual narcotic inventory for the hospital. I was also on of the compounding pharmacists on staff for sterile and non sterile products. The co-workers were the most professional and helpful people that I had ever worked with in a clinical surrounding. The hardest part of the job was leaving to move out of the area. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my fellow professionals.
