Isn't that the funny commercials where someone says "are you a doctor" and they say "no but I stayed at a ..."

Never mind.

What does that have to do with this? Wrong poll?

Would you be willing to answer a few questions related to getting accepted to pharmacy school? (It might be stuff you don't want to share, so it's ok if you don't want to)

What was your approximate GPA and PCAT score when you got accepted. Also, did you do any shadowing or work at a pharmacy before getting accepted? And what would you recommend doing?

We should probably exchange email addresses. I would prefer to give you my info in private....do you have WhatsApp or anything similar?

my email is my first and last name - never know who is lurking around SOH these days! :D

That's completely fine. I do not have that app, would you like me to just email you then?

And I would email you but I don't know your first and last name haha. You can email me whenever you have time, and if you don't want to share that info, that's 100% fine :)

Does treating disphagia count?

Only if you can spell it right.... (dysphagia). ;-)

Both spellings are considered correct =)

Can you point me to a source that states that? The term is derived from "dys-" (bad/difficult /disordered) + "phago" (to eat). The prefix "dis-" means something else entirely, and the word "disphagia" is not a recognized spelling anywhere I look.

My textbook has it being listed as both. It's quite old though. Maybe 20+ years. It might have gone out of date.

I planned, at one point, to be a physician, but I abandoned that. Many years later I ended up as a medical researcher, but that hardly counts. In between, though, I worked in a hospital clinical lab for 9 years, & then several years part-time as

Pretty sure with that résumé, you definitely are considered as a benefit to the medical field. ;-)

Aw, thanks. But not in the same way that *you* are! I wish I had your experience.

It is amazing to me how many codes it takes for even a simple procedure. That field had become very complicated.

And the change coming up in the fall makes everything more interesting. I'm learning both ICD-9 and ICD-10. :-)

It's just a career I've been interested in for awhile and I like what they do. What about you, why those 3?
