Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I decided to complete a residency in order to build upon my clinical knowledge and establish a foundation in areas of pharmacy that I hadn’t had the opportunity to experience up to this point. While the majority of my background has been in the retail pharmacy setting, I felt that pursuing a residency would assist me in becoming a well-rounded clinician by having experience in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.
