Khalid Waleed Taher, PharmD 2020
Why did you choose your WesternU program? As an international student aiming for a specialized residency program (PGY-2) in one of my areas of interests in the U.S., I found at WesternU college of pharmacy all the support I need to be a future competitive applicant for the residency program. The PharmD program at WesternU offers early and extensive exposure to clinical and educational work. For instance, there are several opportunities I got myself involved at including, but not limited to, pharmacy residency elective preparation course, research activities, and working as a tutor. Moreover, having 1.5 years of rotations in the program just perfectly suits my interests.
What would you tell a prospective student about WesternU? I highly encourage WesternU prospective students to not hesitate to communicate with the faculty, students, and staff. They are always very welcoming and eager to help and answer your questions. I have received unlimited support at the “Preview Day” before even joining WesternU which gave me a big motivation to excel and secure acceptance at WesternU.
