Healthcare is changing more now than ever before. With so much uncertainty with looming healthcare reform, Monikos is attempting to do something novel in the healthcare realm. As healthcare students, we understand that collaboration is the key providing value based care to patients. We also understand that healthcare professionals have to be students first. We want to make our impact on healthcare students while they are still learning the information they need to be successful; we also want them to have fun doing it.

We understand that healthcare professionals will always have some sort of pharmacology, drug-based class within their curriculum. Monikos is here to supplement the learning for these drug-based facts to help healthcare students not only learn, but also retain different drug facts.

As a pharmacy student, Patrick observed how much healthcare is changing and realized there is no reason why the same tedious and boring techniques should be used in studying drug facts. He believes that all healthcare students deserve a platform like Monikos that makes their learning process more enjoyable.

Riley

Riley always wanted to work in healthcare, but she was never one to take the traditional path. She graduated from Tufts University with a double degree in Economics and International Relations with a minor in Spanish. During her undergrad years, she took every opportunity to travel, including a year in Buenos Aires during her Junior year. Upon graduation, she moved to her favorite place, New York City, to work in international finance at a Korean investment fund. As an investment banker, Riley was able to learn about international finance and business, but she didn’t feel that her mentors, especially her female mentors were leading lives that she wanted for herself.

Conjuring up her true passion for helping people, making an impact and interest in healthcare, she decided to take another career turn. After much contemplation, she took a leap of faith and started taking post-bac courses at the nearest community college to prepare for pharmacy school. Since that one brave day when she chose to register for the first Biology course, Riley has been blessed to have made it all the way to UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, the best pharmacy school in the nation. Now, with her interest entrepreneurship and startups, she is launching Monikos to help fellow pharmacy students better learn and retain drug information.
