My name is Debika Kundu and I am currently a P3 student pharmacist. On campus, I serve as the President of the American Pharmacists Association – Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) and a LEADS mentor for the Rho Chi Honor Society. I also work as an intern pharmacist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Irving Medical Center and Calvary Hospital.
I am interested in pursuing clinical pharmacy because I want to directly contribute to patient care by collaborating with physicians, nurses, and other integral members of the interdisciplinary team. I want to apply my six years of education to real-life patient cases and continue expanding my knowledge. As a clinical pharmacist, I would also strive to achieve BCPS certification and precept students and residents.
I have recently had more time to start reading again! My favorite genres include mystery, thriller, historical fiction, and self-help books. Besides reading, I also love going to movie theaters, doing Pilates, and exploring new cafes.
