I chose to complete a residency because I wanted to further develop my clinical knowledge while gaining valuable patient care experience in a multitude of settings. During my clinical rotations I discovered that I had a desire to expand my clinical knowledge and that I deeply enjoyed and thrived in the hospital pharmacy environment. Completing a PGY1-residency will help me achieve my goal of crafting my clinical skills while becoming a clinical pharmacist.
