Why did I choose to complete a residency?
Since I was a student, I always envision becoming an experienced and trustworthy pharmacist from whom colleagues may seek patient care advice. I aspire to become a passionate mentor, leading and guiding my learners through their learning experiences. Therefore, I applied for PGY-1 to seek an opportunity to immensely develop my clinical knowledge, critical thinking, teaching, research, and leadership skills needed to achieve all my career goals. As a PGY-1 resident on my first critical care rotation, I began to understand and recognize the essential role of a pharmacist in this setting and realized this was the career path for me. I have been inspired by my critical care preceptors’ abilities to utilize their clinical knowledge creatively and quickly realized that critical care is my passion. I believe that pursuing a career in critical care will allow me to achieve my goal of serving as an available drug resource to other healthcare providers, pharmacy departments, and my future students.

Why did I choose Morton Plant Hospital at BayCare?
Morton Plant hospital is attractive to me because it offers opportunities to develop explicitly strong interprofessional ties, in addition to building a solid foundation in critical care pharmacy practice. The curriculum closely aligns with what I desire in a residency program to prepare myself for a successful career in critical care. With challenging core rotations and diverse electives, the program will provide an exceptional opportunity for me to grow in many aspects of critical care. Also, the required Cardiovascular ICU rotation will help me achieve my goal of becoming a specialist in a cardiac ICU setting.
