IU Student Accepted into Jefferson School of Pharmacy
Immaculata University Junior Jamie Rombach of Severn, MD, has been accepted into the Doctor of Pharmacy program at the Jefferson School of Pharmacy (JSP) at Thomas Jefferson University for the Fall 2015 term. In addition, Rombach was selected for the Dean’s Scholarship from the Jefferson School of Pharmacy.
“It is really exciting to have this opportunity. I am thrilled to be able to continue my academic journey at the Jefferson School of Pharmacy,” commented Rombach.
After successfully completing her junior year and the pre-requisites for admission to the Doctor of Pharmacy program, Rombach will attend JSP for her senior year — after which those credits will transfer back to Immaculata and she will earn a B.S. degree in Allied Health with a concentration in Pre-Pharmacy from Immaculata. She will then continue her studies at JSP for three additional years culminating in a Doctor of Pharmacy degree within a total of seven years (3+4 program).
As an Allied Health major, Rombach is actively involved in various campus organizations including the BioChem Club and serves as vice president and co-founder of the Mac ‘n Books Club. She is president of Sigma Zeta, a national honorary science society; a member of Alpha Xi Social and Service Sorority at Immaculata founded in 1993; and a member of Immaculata’s Honor Society. Rombach is also a member of the volleyball team and a member of the Student Athletic Advisory Committee. She also serves her University as an Admissions Ambassador and Head Resident Assistant.
Rombach graduated from Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn, MD. Her career goal is to become a pharmacist at either a hospital or a nursing home.
“The Allied Health Department is extremely excited that Jamie will be IU’s first representative within the Thomas Jefferson University School of Pharmacy,” stated Robert Rimkis, D.H.Sc., assistant professor of Health Sciences and Services at Immaculata. “She exemplifies the dream of academia, athletics, and service. I am honored and humbled to have been a part of Jamie’s journey at IU.”
Immaculata University is a Catholic, coeducational institution of higher learning, located on the Main Line between Malvern and Exton, 20 miles west of Philadelphia.
