Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I was inspired to complete a residency by my internal medicine preceptor during my P4 year. I immensely enjoyed the clinical aspect of rotations and the systematic approach to developing treatment plans, especially in cardiology. I knew that to pursue a specialty, a PGY-1 residency would put me on the fast track to the specialty of my choice.
Why did I choose Winter Haven Hospital at BayCare?
I chose Winter Haven Hospital for their strong cardiology program and work culture. Winter Haven Hospital offers the unique opportunity to round with cardiologists from different specialties and fosters strong professional relationships between physicians and pharmacists. I also knew that I wanted to grow in a program that would support my interests, even as they change throughout the year. During my interview it was clear to me that the entire program makes a genuine effort to foster the personal and professional growth of their residents.
