CPI Intern of the Month
May's CPI Intern of the Month is James Hunt.
James Hunt is a third year pharmacy student who has been working as a CPI intern on the Meridian campus for the past two years. The main focus of his
internship has been the Community Health Screening (CHS) project which is held three times a semester. During his internship, James also worked on
developing a programmatic assessment of interprofessional perceptions in those who participated in CHS events compared to those did not. Jame's
commitment, professionalism, and skills in collaborating with community medical partners have landed him as the May 2017 CPI Intern of the Month.
"James has incredible vision for interprofessional activities and continues to pursue opportunities for our students to learn with and from others." explained Glenda Carr, Clinical Assistant Professor and Jame's supervisor. "James is a great asset to the CHS and his efforts will be missed next year as he completes his rotations off campus."
James is actively working to be accepted into a residency program and, upon graduation, he looks forward to working in the pharmacy profession.
Great work, James!
