Featured Residents

Sara Hatfield
PGY1 - Morton Plant Hospital

Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I chose to pursue a residency for the opportunity to continue my professional development and sharpen my skill set as a clinician in efforts to best serve the patients in my community. I have always known that I wanted to work as a clinical pharmacist, and residency offers the clinical experience I am looking for in a variety of different settings and specialties vital to my foundation as a well-rounded clinician.

Why did I choose Morton Plant Hospital at BayCare?
During my APPE rotations, I had the opportunity to spend several months across many BayCare institutions learning from some of the most empowering and clinically up-to-date preceptors who challenged me to develop professionally daily, thus making BayCare the health system I wanted to be a part of to further my clinical education as a resident. I also loved the fact that Morton Plant Hospital offered clinically robust learning experiences in areas not commonly found in most residency programs such as cardiothoracic surgery. My rotations within BayCare were both inspirational and foundational in my goals as a pharmacist, and as I researched more institutions, I became really excited at the idea of being a part of a health system that truly embodied their values of trust, dignity, respect, responsibility, and excellence.

Paola Carcamo
PGY1 - Morton Plant Hospital

Why did I choose to complete a residency?
During my clinical rotations, I found myself searching for opportunities to be challenged as a learner to provide avenues for personal and professional growth. This propelled my decision to pursue post-graduate training to further advance my clinical, leadership, and communication skills. My goal is to develop these necessary skills to serve as a strong advocate for my patients.

Why did I choose Morton Plant Hospital at BayCare?
I had the opportunity of completing a couple of clinical rotations through the BayCare Healthcare System where I was introduced to dedicated preceptors, committed to providing mentorship and guidance to ensure my success. Those experiences further strengthened my desire to pursue residency training at BayCare. Morton Plant Hospital offers many experiences which I find invaluable, including a diverse patient population, a wide variety in rotation opportunities, and a challenging environment to support my learning and advancement towards becoming a competent clinical pharmacist.

Chelsea Phillips
PGY1 - St. Joseph's Hospital

Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I chose to complete a residency after practicing for a year in the an outpatient setting. I believed a residency would allow for a stronger transition  back into an inpatient setting as a clinical pharmacist. A residency would allow me to expand on my clinical experiences and knowledge so that I may work at the top of my degree as a clinical pharmacist.

Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
St. Joseph’s hospital at BayCare offers a large diversity of rotations and experiences that provides opportunities to practice in fields you wouldn’t normally see in pharmacy school. The program is very flexible in providing an experience tailored to your interests with experienced preceptors and staff. Overall it is the environment of BayCare which caters to learning and growing as a professional, that really spoke to me as a program.

Airka Sanchez
PGY2 Pediatrics - St. Joseph's Children's Hospital

Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I chose to complete a residency to further develop my practice as a clinical pharmacist.  During my time as a PGY1 resident I was able to take rotations in general pediatrics, PICU, and NICU and these rotations solidified my interest in pediatric pharmacy. I hope by the end of this residency year I am better able to navigate through clinical decision making for pediatric patients and increase my exposure to different areas of pediatric pharmacy.

Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital at BayCare?
After completing my first year of residency I knew St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital would be a great fit for me. I choose St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital for many reasons including the welcoming culture. In addition, I knew I would be learning from knowledgeable preceptors and I would be welcomed as part of the interdisciplinary team. St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital offers a variety of learning opportunities and I know during my time here I will have the opportunity to learn and grow as a well-rounded clinical pediatric pharmacist.

Emily Peabody
PGY1 - St. Joseph's Hospital South

Why did I choose to complete a residency?
During my pharmacy school career I had the opportunity to work as an intern alongside many clinical pharmacist preceptors. Performing clinical interventions and being an active participant in our patients’ care really pushed me to pursue hospital pharmacy. I knew that a residency would provide personal and professional development while allowing myself the experience required to become a competent and confident clinical pharmacist.

Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
I was drawn to St. Joseph’s Hospital – South following a clinical rotation during my second year of pharmacy school. All of the clinical pharmacists were so knowledgeable and the environment among staff members truly resembled that of a family.  I was familiar with the company culture of BayCare, thanks to my time as an intern at Morton Plant Hospital, and knew that a BayCare facility would be the best place to call home.
