Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I knew that I wanted to practice as a clinical pharmacist and really wanted to be suited with the skills necessary to become a great practitioner, so I chose to pursue a residency to help me secure those skills. A residency allows you to practice as a pharmacist but provides extra guidance, which is very important to a new pharmacist in a new setting. I also appreciate the exposure a residency offers to such a diverse range of topics like administration, research, and various trainings that might be new to someone but critical elements in becoming an effective interdisciplinary team member. I wanted exposure to as many areas as possible while having the security of a preceptor verifying my work to ensure safety at all times. A residency provides a holistic view of the inpatient operation and provides experiences to promote growth in many areas that are critical for positive patient outcomes. I ultimately want to practice at the highest level, providing excellent patient care, along with an interdisciplinary healthcare team so I knew a residency was the right path for my goals.

Why did I choose Morton Plant Hospital at BayCare?
I was fortunate enough to have one of my APPE rotations at a BayCare institution and I was immediately magnetized by the culture and vision of this company. BayCare Health Systems has a priority to provide the best possible patient care and constantly adapts to achieve this goal. Also, team members from every single department are connected enthusiastically to achieve this goal. I had a desire to become a part of the Mease Countryside team because of the reputation this hospital has made for itself, being an IBM Top-100 hospital, as well as the multitude of functions this facility can operate within. Just to name a few areas I was impressed with were the diversity of the patient population and disease states, pediatrics, outpatient infusion center, and a high volume emergency department. Then my final decision to become a part of the Mease Countryside team came from my interaction with the preceptors and other staff during the interview process. They have such a well-rounded pharmacy department that facilitates a very strong learning environment and everyone here is committed to helping residents achieve the goal of becoming a proficient clinical pharmacist.
