Meet Our Second Student Pharmacist for April, Mark Borns.


Earlier in the week, we introduced you to our student pharmacist, Kristy Jackson. Today, we’d like you to meet our second student pharmacist for the month of April, Mark Borns. Like Kristy, Mark is a student at The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy and will be graduating in May with a doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree before gaining his licensure to practice as a pharmacist.

Please make Mark feel very welcome. Here is what Mark has to say about himself:

My name is Mark Borns and I grew up in a suburb just south of Dayton, OH. I moved to Columbus after high school to begin my studies at The Ohio State University where I completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences. During this time I began working part-time as a Pharmacy Technician at Discount Drug Mart in Grove City, OH.

After deciding I did in fact want to pursue becoming a pharmacist, I was fortunate enough to be accepted into Ohio State’s PharmD program from which I will be graduating in May 2016.

During pharmacy school, I became licensed as a Pharmacy Intern and continued to work part time at Discount Drug Mart. To diversify my experiences, I later began working with Walgreens and then eventually at the Medication Management Program at Ohio State where I provide medication consultation services over the phone to patients nationwide.

In my final year of pharmacy school, that is now almost finished, I have been rotating through various pharmacy practice sites. I spent time at a nuclear pharmacy, various hospitals, at Eli Lilly and Company in Indianapolis, IN., Whitehall Family Health Center, Kroger, and now at Plain City Druggist.

Upon graduation from pharmacy school, I will be moving to Indianapolis where I have accepted a fellowship position with Eli Lilly and Company.

Outside of work and pharmacy related activities, I remain active with my family and friends. I enjoy staying physically active including participating in many outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, playing golf, tennis, and basketball. My friends and I like to watch or attend Ohio State football and basketball games whenever possible. I am very laid back and love to interact with others.

Please feel free to stop by Plain City Druggist sometime while I am here during the month of April so that I can introduce myself.
