Kyle Walburg, Kappa Epsilon
As this is the smallest fraternity at the College of Pharmacy, it has been a pleasure to serve as president and promote the goals and initiatives of both our Alpha chapter and the national chapter. With an excellent executive board, it has been an exciting experience leading our chapter towards increased membership, expanded outreach, and more member-driven philanthropy.
This position has been integral towards my development as a student pharmacist and leader. Working together with a team from different backgrounds to accomplish goals will be useful in my future as a pharmacist. I am a second year student, and am currently an intern at the Minneapolis VA Hospital. I am passionate about health systems pharmacy, and believe that a career as a clinical pharmacist will help me to accomplish my aspirations. It is clear that pharmacy is a changing field, and it is also evident that leaders will need to emerge within the profession to change the face of pharmacy, lead the drive for provider status, and enhance the abilities of future colleagues across the nation.
My experiences at the College of Pharmacy thus far have aided in my development as a leader, preparing to enhance the practice of pharmacy. My dream job would be to continue my employment within the VA Health System after residency, and it is clear that the skills I have gained through my Kappa Epsilon leadership position are irreplaceable towards achieving this goal.
