OEE Spotlight: Emily Lohr, Pharm.D.
How long have you worked at Duquesne?
I started as the Experiential Education Coordinator, which is a part-time position, in January 2016. It's been a fast six years!
Previous work experience/precepting:
I served as an APPE ambulatory care preceptor in my role as Clinical Coordinator for Giant Eagle Pharmacy. I have been with Giant Eagle Pharmacy for 16 years and I still work in the stores monthly, which I greatly value.
I enjoy spending time with my husband Brian (also a pharmacist) and our three kids ages two, five and seven. I am heavily involved in my church community and find that even though I work part-time, I somehow fill that other time to the brim! As a hobby, I love puzzles, which is fitting since I work in Experiential...one giant puzzle!
What you enjoy most about your job:
I most enjoy working with students. This is such an exciting time in their lives and their energy is contagious. I also love opening students' eyes to the ever-expanding job settings that are available to them. I have visited most of our experiential sites personally and I am always impressed with the non-traditional paths our preceptors are forging. Finally, it is an absolute pleasure to work with everyone in the Duquesne community!
