Profile

Jacquelyn Waller, PharmD, BCPS

What class do you teach?
Pharmacology in both the College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) and Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (MSBS) Program

 

What advice do you have for first-year students?
When you feel overwhelmed, remember the reason(s) you chose to pursue medicine in the first place!

What projects and/or research are you currently working on or plan to work on in the future?
I currently serve as Clinical Research Coordinator in the Rocky Vista Health Center (RVHC). In collaboration with the RVHC physicians, we hope to increase student and resident interest in clinical research endeavors.

Outside of RVU, do you participate in any other organization/s?
I volunteer with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado mentor2.0 program. This program matches college-educated mentors with high school students to promote successful high school graduation and inspire interest in a college education. I recognize the influential effect my role-models have had on me and hope to pay it forward.

What do you do in your spare time?
I love to read and enjoy the outdoors. My favorite Colorado activities include running, hiking, camping, and skiing.
