About rajwantminhas

I just finished my pharmacy degree at UBC. I am excited to be part of Lower Mainland Pharmacy Services. My goal is to get exposed to different kinds of disease states, medications and become better at applying my knowledge. Patient interaction is another aspect that I am going to strive to get better at. I am looking forward to this intense year and learning tonnes!

I’m on my infectious disease rotation right now and two of the staff physicians I’ve worked with have noted that they love doxycycline for septic arthritis due to good concentrations achieved in synovial fluid.
