The 3rd annual Pennsylvania Society of Health-System Pharmacists (PSHP) State Jeopardy Championship was held at the 51st PSHP Annual Assembly in October. A hard-fought, three-round competition saw the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy (PCP) take home the winners’ trophy.  It is PCP’s first win in the competition, as Jefferson College of Pharmacy and Wilkes’ Nesbitt College of Pharmacy won the first two events. 

PCP’s Student Society of Health-System Pharmacy (SSHP) advisors, Dr. Brooklyn Cobb and Dr. Angela Bingham, attended the event and thoroughly enjoyed watching their students emerge victorious. “Our students came back this year with a desire to not only give it their all, but to also have fun,” Dr. Cobb stated. “They worked well with each other, cheering each other on for every question, regardless if they had the answer right or not. I was incredibly proud watching them that day and they still make me proud now.” 

The winning team consisted of PCP students Karissa Chow, Ryan Huber, and Julie Paris. Paris was “super grateful that PSHP gives us the opportunity to practice reviewing our clinical knowledge as well as letting us meet other schools of pharmacy.” It is not only a spirited competition of knowledge, but also a fun and collegial event between the Pennsylvania schools of pharmacy. Chow stated, “I had a wonderful time at the PSHP Student Jeopardy Competition. Since competing last year, it was amazing to see the growth that one year makes. I am so thankful for the professors and preceptors that have helped guide my education.”  The competition also gives students a chance to monitor their progress, as Huber said, "I had a great time participating with my friends on the team and I'm thankful for the opportunity to gauge my knowledge to not only see how much I've learned, but what I could focus on to improve." 

Dr. Bingham added that “we’re really proud of Julie, Karissa, and Ryan. As outstanding student leaders, they’ve always been great representatives of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy. It’s exciting they were also able to showcase their clinical knowledge in the PSHP Student Jeopardy Competition. We’re grateful for the opportunities PSHP provides our state’s future pharmacists.”

Many thanks to the judges, timekeepers, and SSHP advisors across the Commonwealth who helped with the writing of questions, and a special thanks to Temple’s Dr. Michael Mancano for serving as moderator and Temple’s Dr. Anisha Grover for coordinating the effort to ensure this year’s competition ran smoothly.
