Why did I choose to complete a residency?
My experiences within pharmacy range from independent retail to an inpatient clinical setting. Throughout my inpatient experience, I appreciated seeing how vital a clinical pharmacist is within the interdisciplinary team and the impacts they made on patient’s care. I believe a clinical residency would be the best way to gain the skillset and knowledge needed to become a crucial member of the team.
Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
Since my first semester of pharmacy school, I worked as an intern in the BayCare Health System. The culture within BayCare was something I wanted to be a part of long time. When speaking with the former residents at St. Joseph’s Hospital, it was evident that they felt well supported and prepared for a future as a clinical pharmacist. Additionally, St. Joseph’s Hospital offers a well-balanced set of core rotations paired with a unique variety of electives that I felt would help to cultivate my clinical knowledge.
