Monica Garcia

Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I decided to pursue a PGY-1 pharmacy residency because I wanted the opportunity to expand my clinical knowledge and gain valuable patient care experience in an inpatient setting. Coming from a retail background, I knew that the accelerated pace of a residency program was necessary for me to apply the knowledge and skills I’ve learned in school to real patients and clinical scenarios while allowing me to become a confident, independent member of the healthcare team.

Why did I choose South Florida Baptist Hospital at BayCare?
I realized that South Florida Baptist Hospital was the right fit for me during my PGY-1 interview. From the very first moment I stepped foot into the pharmacy I felt the close bond between all staff and I knew that I wanted to become a part of their team. Most of the clinical pharmacists have been employed at South Florida Baptist Hospital for many years which truly reflects how much they enjoy their career and culture at SFBH. Aside from that, I felt that the small size of the hospital would work to my advantage as it would allow me to have more one-on-one time with my preceptors and other healthcare providers. Since starting my residency I can say with confidence that all pharmacists here play an integral role in patient care and I have truly felt like a valued member of the team since day one. With that, I am confident that I will emerge from this program as a competent and confident clinical pharmacist!
