Jude Sammani

Forme Pharmacy Trainee

Traineeship Year:

Jude is currently a PharmD student at the University of Arizona, where she also studied prior to entering pharmacy school. Having worked in a variety of inpatient and outpatient pharmacy settings, she is excited to continue to expand on her experience to work towards providing holistic care to children and families within the community through an interdisciplinary approach. She spends her free time outdoors with her friends and family, exploring new places in Tucson, and playing music.


Looking back at my experience with the Pediatric Pulmonary Center (PPC), I feel incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to be involved in this program.

The pharmacy traineeship with the PPC is an experience like no other— the involvement of pharmacy within this type of program is incredibly unique, more specifically, a one-of-a-kind opportunity for pharmacy students in the country. My experiences in this traineeship emphasized the incredible value of patient-centered, personalized, and holistic care, while also illustrating the strength in a cohesive, multidisciplinary team.

The integrative nature of the PPC is inspiring; I was able to work alongside other pharmacy professionals, physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, dietitians, family advocates, and many others. Despite having a variety of clinical experiences prior to my traineeship, I never had the opportunity to work on such a well-rounded, diverse team. Working alongside our staff towards improving the lives and experiences of children with Severe Asthma and Cystic Fibrosis has been incredible, and I’ve learned so much in what feels like such a short amount of time. With the help of our incredible faculty and my fellow trainees, I also feel that I was able to contribute to what I feel is one of the highest levels of patient care.

Outside of direct clinical interactions, I also had the opportunity to participate in clinic projects, interdisciplinary case studies, and leadership and professional development trainings that contributed a great deal to my overall experience. The combination of clinical, educational, research, and leadership trainings centered around pediatric care helped me develop myself into a better student, trainee, and future professional. Every part of this traineeship was so incredibly thoughtful and helpful in my pursuit of a future as a specialized clinical pharmacist.
