Why did I choose to complete a residency?
During my hospital APPE rotations in pharmacy school, I enjoyed practicing clinical pharmacy to better my patients care. It was during my rotations that I further fell in love with the field of pharmacy and opened my mind to all of the routes it can bring me. I knew that after pharmacy school, a residency would provide me the tools and experience to expand my knowledge and practice at the top of my license.

Why did I choose Winter Haven Hospital at BayCare?
I had the opportunity to work as an intern at Winter Haven Hospital for two years before applying for residency. I thrived in the collaborative and inviting culture of BayCare. This includes always striving to improve and teaching others at any opportunity. I felt that I had more to learn from the community at Winter Haven Hospital. I choose Winter Haven Hospital as it contains all of the resources to build me into a strong clinical pharmacist.
