Ruquaya Quraishi '12
Clinical Pharmacy Resident, Children's Hospital of Orange County
Pharm. D., University of New Mexico

"Securing a residency in California as an out-of-state candidate was a challenge. I believe that I was able to match at a residency program that only two positions because Prep equipped me with an excellent foundation in leadership, teamwork, and dedication. The thing I miss most about Prep are the amazing teachers who cared so much about my growth while I was a student there; I couldn't have accomplished the things I have today if it wasn't for them."
