Alex Fletcher of Cromwell, CT, who began his journey at Western New England as a Pre-pharmacy student. He is now a second-year pharmacy student pursuing both his Doctor of Pharmacy and MBA at the same time, and is in the midst of completing his IPPE rotations. In order to immerse himself in the field, Alex has worked as a pharmacy technician at CVS, an intern at Middlesex Hospital, and most recently as a medical writing intern for Pfizer. His work supported Pfizer Consumer Healthcare and involved developing and presenting a poster on the appropriateness of dosage formulations for pediatric patients worldwide.
On campus, Alex is extremely active as a student leader. He is in his third year as a Resident Advisor to first year students, a role that requires the ability to create a comfortable and safe community, to lead by example, and have an extensive working knowledge of campus resources. In recognition of his academic and service commitment, he was inducted into the Alpha Lambda Delta, Alpha Zeta Omega, Mortar Board, and the National Residence Hall Honorary honor societies. Alex also works as a Building Supervisor in the St. Germain Campus Center, an essential role that keeps the Campus Center running.
Student Senate framed much of Alex’s experience during his undergraduate studies. As a representative from the College of Arts and Sciences and a member of the Finance Committee, he had the opportunity to shape campus policy and manage a substantial budget, skills that will serve him in both business and pharmacy. He has also been extremely dedicated to the One in Four and Pre-pharmacy clubs.
As Alex embarks on his Doctor of Pharmacy, he has engaged himself in professional organizations, including the Industry Pharmacists Association; American Pharmacists Association; and the College of Pharmacy Student Government, where he serves as Treasurer.
After graduation, Alex aspires to work in ‘Big Pharma’ doing work in the safety and medical field for new drug products.
