I started my fifth rotation at Village Pharmacy II. I am half-way through and this place is awesome. It has made retail pharmacy not seem that bad. I have had many opportunities to counsel patients. The pharmacy also does compounding so I have made oral suspensions, and capsules. Making capsules were fun. I have also learned a lot about over the counter products.
I also learned about medicare part D and I helped some patients look up part D plans.

At Village all the medications are placed on the shelves alphabetically by brand name, so I have learned the brand names to a lot of drugs. Some that were brand names 30-40 years ago.
