Daniel Acosta

Why did I choose to complete a residency?
As I was finishing up my pharmacy education I knew I wanted to be a clinical pharmacist. I also knew that the best way for me to prepare to serve the public in this role was to do post graduate education. Residency provides me the opportunity to focus my attention on specific areas of pharmacy to truly hone my skills as a clinical pharmacist and serve the community to the best of my ability.

Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital – South at BayCare?
St. Joseph’s Hospital – South has many of the qualities I am looking for in a PGY1 program by providing the environment of a smaller hospital with the resources of a large health system. The variety of electives available through the BayCare Health System also gives me the experience I need to explore the profession and take my first steps into my career. I also believe the environment found in St. Joseph’s Hospital – South is conducive to closer relationships with preceptors, coworkers, and prescribers leading to greater communication and trust as well as exposure to a variety of experiences ultimately giving me a wholistic understanding of the many aspects of patient care.
