    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I really recommend this course because if you take it, it means you attend Ohio Northern University because of its wonderful Pharmacy program. I took it with the current Assistant Dean, Kelly Shields. She is, in my opinion, the best POP 1 professor because not only does she maintain a balance of professionalism and charisma, she has an interesting sense of humor. If you're in Pharmacy, you're probably taking very difficult classes and could use the creative humor she as to offer.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed Professor Shield's sense of humor. She has a way of sounding funny while keeping a straight face that only makes her even more hilarious. She is very understanding of inconviences or mistakes such as forgetting to submit an assignment or not being able to make it to class. That being said, she's also a smart lady so treat her with the utmost respect and don't try to lie to her. The class was very fun however, and it does teach a lot about the Profession of Pharmacy. I learned how many years of school other healthcare professionals have to go through and what they're jobs are. For example, now I know the difference between a DO (Doctor of Osteopathic medicine) and an MD (Doctor of Medicine). In all, I really liked the class because it focused on Pharmacy but also other healthcare careers.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    A big advice for the 25 Drugs you will have to memorize by the end of the semester: most drugs with suffixes -astatin are indicated for hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), ones with -terol are indicated for asthma, most with -prazole are indicated for GERD, and those with suffixes -il such as lisinopril will be indicated for hypertension (high blood pressure). It took me some time to find this pattern but once I did, it made the memorization so much easier. Plus any drug you see with these suffixes, you’ll be able to sound smart by telling your friends or/and family what the indications are!
