Why did I choose to complete a residency?
My pharmacy school education and rotations allowed me the opportunity to experience clinical pharmacy as well as multiple leadership and administration experiences. While I enjoyed both the clinical and administrative sides of pharmacy, I noticed that while I was experiencing pharmacy administration I began to relate to both my father and grandfather who each created and developed their own businesses. Almost immediately I realized that a Health System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership residency was a perfect opportunity for me to merge my interests of business and clinical opportunities and still impact patient care.

Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
I decided to apply to BayCare Health System’s Health System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) residency due to multiple factors. As a Tampa native I was already familiar with BayCare Health System’s hospitals being phenomenal options for care while offering multiple locations through their fifteen hospitals across West Central Florida. Also, the PGY-1 year of the HSPAL residency at BayCare is modeled after the clinical PGY-1 residency allowing for clinical growth which is something I was looking to experience. The BayCare HSPAL program is also part of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s M.S. collaborative which allows their residents to have an incredible opportunity for education and networking. After my interview with this program and meeting with BayCare’s pharmacy leadership teams I knew this would be a perfect fit for me.
