2023 Successful Graduate Honoree Aubrianna Borger

“The Allied Medical program at Cape May County Technical High School opens students up to considering all of the different possible professions within medicine and provides them with a strong baseline medical education that is important no matter which profession they pursue,” said Borger, a 2017 graduate of the program. “My knowledge from the Dynamics in Healthcare, Medical Terminology, and Anatomy and Physiology courses helped me tremendously during my pharmacy school education – in fact I still have my Medical Terminology book to this day!”  

She said she also appreciated the teaching style of Allied Medical instructor Tracey Skiles, which she found to mimic a small college classroom by mixing traditional lectures with practical, hands-on experiences. That prepared her for post-secondary success, and some of the coursework became even more relevant as she pursued pharmacy. 

“I still remember giving mock intramuscular injections into a manikin during one of our classes…and now I give real IM injections in the form of vaccinations every day at work,” Borger said. “I have definitely learned and grown a lot since those mock injections, but I don’t think I would be as successful as I have been without my education at Cape May Tech.”  

Borger recently returned to her alma mater to pay it forward. She presented to current Allied Medical students about a career in pharmacy. Her perspective included the important role a pharmacist plays in the community.
