Why did I choose to complete a residency?
The reason why I choose to complete a residency was to develop my practice as a clinical pharmacist. During residency I hope to learn the skills which will help me navigate through my clinical decision making and ensure I am always practicing to the best of my ability. I also want to increase my exposure to different areas of pharmacy practice. I have a strong interest in pediatric pharmacy and while completing residency I hope to further explore this specialty.
Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
I chose to complete a residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital due to the many opportunities available to the residents. Having the opportunity to complete a residency at a larger institution will allow me to tailor the program to my specific interests and determine where I am best fit to practice. While completing my rotations as a student at St. Joseph’s Hospital I was able to get a small glimpse into what residency would feel like at this institution and I knew this program would be a great fit for me moving forward into my career as a pharmacist.
