Why did I choose to complete a residency?
During pharmacy school, I had the opportunity to work in multiple areas of pharmacy practice. I felt the strongest connection to the inpatient setting because of the complex disease states I encountered. I chose to pursue a residency because of the wealth of knowledge and expertise I would gain from the experience. I wanted to continue to expand my clinical knowledge and skills to grow into a confident clinical pharmacist and medication expert.

Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
I chose St. Joseph’s hospital because of the encouraging learning environment and robust elective list. As an APPE student at St. Joseph’s, the experienced team of pharmacists tailored my learning experiences to my interests and focused on my development. An extensive elective list also provides opportunities to gain exposure in various practice settings to help me become a well-rounded pharmacist. After seeing what the program had to offer, I knew St. Joseph’s would allow me to excel and become an asset to the interdisciplinary team.
