Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I initially chose to complete a PGY-1 residency because I wanted to further expand my clinical knowledge and goals of becoming a well-rounded health care professional. After completing a PGY-1 at St. Joseph’s and having the ability to experience the fast pace and unique environment of the Emergency Department, I knew I wanted to pursue a PGY-2 in Emergency Medicine.
Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
I welcomed the opportunity to continue my residency career at St. Joseph’s Hospital as the first PGY-2 in Emergency Medicine. As the 5th busiest Emergency Department in the nation, I knew I was going to be exposed to a wide array of patient care experiences. The emergency department at St. Joseph’s Hospital offers a distinct team approach to patient care in which pharmacy plays a major role. The quality of the preceptors, the numerous teaching opportunities, and the great support from other health care providers ensures that I will be able to practice at the highest level in order to achieve my goals.
