Why did I choose to complete a residency?
Throughout pharmacy school, I always had an interest in working as a pharmacist in the inpatient setting. These interests were solidified via my advanced pharmacy practice experiences I had in the previous year and I knew I wanted to pursue a residency to achieve my career goals. A residency will allow me to seek the utmost knowledge and training by promoting opportunities in patient care, critical thinking, and research. I consider these skills to be necessary in order to be able to develop into a proficient and assertive clinical pharmacist prepared to serve my patients to the best of my abilities.
Why did I choose Mease Countryside Hospital at BayCare?
The main reason I chose Mease Countryside Hospital (MCH) to complete my post graduate training was because of how welcoming and kind everyone was during my interview—I felt very comfortable during the entire process. Additionally, MCH had all the components I was looking for in a PGY-1 program. The appealing factors consisted of the opportunities for multidisciplinary interactions, presentation, and research opportunities available to residents. Furthermore, I was looking for a program that provided a wide range or required and elective learning experiences and MCH had it all—from emergency medicine, to behavioral health, infectious diseases, pediatrics and much more. I’m confident that Mease Countryside Hospital will provide me the most advance and cohesive training to achieve my goals and provide the best care to my patients. I’m so fortunate to be a part of the Mease Countryside Hospital family!
