Past NCODA APPE Students



Benjamin Bratek, RN, PharmD Candidate 2020, Albany College of Pharmacy Health Sciences

“My time at NCODA was extremely valuable in terms of my development as a future pharmacist. Not only did I acquire communication and management skills, I also left NCODA each day feeling like I made a difference. The team-based atmosphere is great, and everyone is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this rotation to any student looking for an out-of-the-box experience that will have a lasting career development impact.”



Emily Uebbing, PharmD Candidate 2020, University of Rhode Island

“This experience opened my eyes to the different possibilities pharmacists have with their diploma. My most memorable moments during my NCODA rotation were the opportunities I had to network. I am grateful that I went out of my comfort zone and chose the rotation. I am going to be a better pharmacist for it. NCODA staff worked with me throughout this rotation to help me achieve my goals.”



Christopher Russell, PharmD Candidate 2020, St. John Fischer College Wegmans’ School of Pharmacy

“My time on APPE rotation at NCODA was a truly beneficial and rewarding experience. I continually practiced my research, writing, and presenting skills, and I greatly improved in all these areas because of my time at NCODA. I also made countless connections and friends who will be willing to help me throughout my career. NCODA offers a unique APPE experience and I would definitely recommend it to all pharmacy students!”




Rebecca Corvese, PharmD, Oncology Association Management Fellow at NCODA

“The NCODA APPE experience quite literally changed my life for the better. I never realized how I could help patients on a national level as a pharmacy student until my time at NCODA. I was able to improve upon and receive feedback on both my strengths and weaknesses during my rotation. I recommend this experience to anyone interested in management, oncology and/or industry.”
