Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I chose to complete a residency because I wanted to gain more experience in the clinical setting. I really enjoyed all of clinical APPE rotations, but there were still many more areas that I wanted to explore. Residency opens many doors because of all the networking opportunities that are available through conferences. It also eases you into the clinical setting rather than jumping in all at once and being completely on your own.
Why did I choose Winter Haven Hospital at BayCare?
I chose Winter Haven Hospital because I had an APPE rotation at this site and loved everything about it. I was able to work with many of the residency preceptors during my rotation and wanted to learn more from them because of their teaching styles. They tailor rotations to the resident’s interests so that we get the most out of our residency and also give us the option to do advanced rotations in areas that we are passionate about. The pharmacists, technicians, and administration all have great relationships with each other and work well together, making it an incredible environment to work in. The staff here is unlike any other and it really feels like a family here.
