Meet Eric Chau, Our Student Pharmacist for January at Karl Road.


We are so lucky to have a student pharmacist at Happy Druggist on Karl Road this month from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy. Eric Chau is a fourth year student who will graduate in May 2017 and then go on to practice as a pharmacist. In this posting, we’d like to introduce you to Eric.

Here is what Eric has to say about himself:

Hello! I am Eric Chau, a fourth-year pharmacy student from The Ohio State University for the month of January.

I grew up in South Jersey, near Philadelphia. Most of my Jersey friends are fans of Phillies, Sixers, Flyers, or Eagles. I learned early not to take sides with any sports teams; I watch them all. I do enjoy a Philly Cheesesteak once in a while, “Two whiz wit’,” and an Italian Pork sandwich with broccoli rabe. Yes, I can eat a lot.

After graduating from the University of Maryland College Park, I took some time as a research manager at the Johns Hopkins University in the Pulmonary Department. We did all kinds of scientific research: viruses, bacteria, mice, and nanoparticles. I was also involved with clinical trials and budget management. I am fortunate to use my research background in the field of pharmacy.

Currently, I am a senior intern at The James Cancer Hospital. This opportunity allows student pharmacists to further understand chemotherapy medications, side effects, and compounding. Because of this experience, I developed a strong interest to become an inpatient clinical pharmacist in the near future.

I would like to work in a comprehensive medical center one day, and I am open to any location.

Please feel free to stop by and say Hi! I am more than happy to talk to you about medications, food, and life.
