He has enthusiastically precepted multiple pharmacy students and residents, providing them with a strong clinical foundation to take with them in their future practice. Ben is passionate about continuing education, and shares this passion and knowledge with both learners and his peers. Ben is known to send applicable journal articles to our clinical pharmacists, and is always keen to discuss the strengths and weakness of a new study.
