The preceptor had this to say about Emily:
APPE Rotation at UF College of Pharmacy-Orlando
“Two students on our academic rotation embody attributes that the University of Florida College of Pharmacy aims to instill in its graduates. Emily Bennett and (Student) are the epitome of what every student should aspire to be, both as students on rotation and as soon-to-be pharmacists in the real world. They approach every opportunity with enthusiasm, accept every challenge with a positive can-do attitude, and embrace every challenge as a way to grow themselves personally and professionally. Emily and (Student) take the initiative by stepping up, performing beyond expectations, and looking for ways to be an integral part of the team. They are kind-hearted, patient, intuitive, and welcome the chance to mentor. I’ve had the pleasure to work with many great students over the years, and (Student) and Emily are a true model of excellence. They represent the COP with grace and a phenomenal mindset. They are going to make fantastic pharmacists, as they are already great human beings.”
