Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I chose to pursue a residency because I knew it would provide me the additional training and tools needed to enhance my clinical skills to evolve into a well-rounded pharmacist. As a new pharmacist, I know I will learn to be more confident in my ability to provide the utmost quality patient care. Residency will also allow me to enrich my personal and professional growth. I aspire to become a pediatric and women’s health clinical pharmacist and the training I receive as a PGY1 will better equip me for pursuing a PGY2.
Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
I chose St. Joseph’s Hospital because they provide the opportunity to learn from a diverse patient population, while mastering fundamental clinical rotations. During my time as a student on APPEs, I received constant support and encouragement from all the pharmacists, residents and BayCare team. I knew St. Joseph’s was where I wanted to continue to work, learn, and grow as a resident. St. Joseph’s provides a diverse selection of electives and I was especially attracted to their core pediatric rotation and women’s health elective. The learning opportunities at St. Joseph’s align with my career goals of becoming a pediatric and women’s health clinical pharmacist.
