Patrick Hoheisel is pursuing his Doctor of Pharmacy degree at the University of Minnesota – College of Pharmacy with an expected graduation date of May 2017. Patrick earned a B.S. in Cell Biology from the University of Minnesota in 2006 and worked at the Mayo Clinic for seven years, most recently as Assistant Supervisor of the clinical Cytogenetics laboratory. It is because of this experience that Patrick understands the impact that every member of the healthcare team can have on patient care.
Patrick has always viewed leadership as a core principle of any healthcare discipline and since returning to professional school has held many positions in the College of Pharmacy including class representative, college assembly liaison, Vice President of the Minnesota Student College of Clinical Pharmacy, American College of Clinical Pharmacy liaison, and President/Administrator of the Patient Centered Healthcare Home (PatCH) initiative to provide free comprehensive chronic medical care to underserved populations in the Duluth area. Patrick’s commitment to service also took him to Puebla, Mexico in May of 2014 where he along with his peers held free clinics to provide care to over 500 patients.
Patrick is also dedicated to advocating for and advancing the profession, especially in a clinical capacity.
He is interested in the integration of genetics and pharmacy and how this unique discipline can help shape the personalization of medicine and improve patient outcomes. To continue to build his clinical knowledge, upon graduation Patrick plans to complete a PGY-1 residency at an academic medical center.
