March 14, 2018 — Seniors enrolled in AP Biology took part in a career field exploration at the University of Nebraska Medical Center Wednesday afternoon.

Students were dismissed from class and boarded a bus just after 11 a.m. Before heading to the Medical Center, they enjoyed a quick lunch with their classmates at Three Happiness, a Chinese restaurant located at 51st & Leavenworth Streets.

Around 1 p.m., the class got off the bus at the Lozier Center for Pharmacy Services, located on UNMC’s campus. There, students were given a tour of the lab and patient simulation facilities within the building.

Students also received a tour of UNMC’s pharmaceutical simulation facilities.

The highlight of the trip was the medicine compounding simulation that students performed in the school’s pharmacy lab. Students turned Smarties candy, which acted as a mock-medicine, into a cream ointment by crushing the candy and adding it to vanilla frosting and glycerin, a gelatinous substance composed of sugar and water. The resulting paste, while not medicinal, was edible and made a sugary treat for students.

“It was really interesting to see the UNMC campus and all of the simulations they offer their students,” said senior Ryan Chapman. “Through the compounding lab, I feel as if I understand a bit about what pharmacists do on a daily basis,” Chapman said.
