Why did I choose to complete a residency?
At the start of my pharmacy school career, my intentions were like many other pharmacy students who have a long history of retail experience. I was eager to learn and retain everything I could, graduate, and start my career as a retail pharmacist. These intentions, as they do for many students, changed quickly. I developed a strong interest in clinical pharmacy throughout pharmacy school and my clinical rotations. It became clear to me that I wanted to get the most out of my degree after graduation and a residency program was my method of doing so.

Why did I choose St. Anthony’s Hospital at BayCare?
Growing up in the Tampa Bay area and hearing about BayCare’s strong reputation for patient care led me to investigate the residency programs they offered. I came across St. Anthony’s program, which I was already familiar with. St. Anthony’s Hospital was my first exposure to clinical pharmacy during my 2nd year of pharmacy school and it was one of the most rewarding rotations I completed. Their residency program offered core rotations that I was most interested in and had unique elective opportunities, as well. After speaking with the previous residents and hearing their excitement about the program, I knew that St. Anthony’s at BayCare would be a great fit for me.
