Recent PCP Grad Says 'Post-Grad Life is Golden'
Written by Lauren Whetzel-Siburkis
Published on July 1, 2015
While many students dread entering the real world after college, recent grad Joseen Chundamala PharmD’15 couldn’t be happier. The young pharmacist had a job lined up with Penn Medicine shortly after graduating in May, recently signed the lease to her very own apartment, and even purchased her first piece of furniture that was not from IKEA or Craigslist.
As far as Chundamala is concerned, post-grad life is golden.
After working towards her doctor of pharmacy degree over the past six years, Chundamala
is now employed as a clinical pharmacist at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Some of her responsibilities include preparing and dispensing medications, as well
as designing, recommending, monitoring, and evaluating patient and age-specific pharmacotherapy
Chundamala said she felt confident and prepared entering the workforce because she spent the past three years as a pharmacy intern with Penn Medicine, as well as held various externships with Walgreens, Columbia University Medical Center, BioCentric, Inc., New Castle Rx, and Crownpoint Indian Health Services. She also values the strong pharmacy education and network opportunities she received as a student at USciences.
During her time at USciences, Chundamala was an active member in several on-campus organizations, such as the Alpha Sigma Tau National Sorority, American College of Clinical Pharmacy, American Pharmacists Association, and American Society of Health-System Pharmacists.
