Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I decided to complete a PGY1 residency because I wanted to continue my training. The transition from school to being a pharmacist is a big jump. Things done in clinical practice are not always how we learn them in school. I wanted to work in an environment focused on learning. I wanted mentorship to develop my clinical decision making, build up my confidence, as well as work alongside pharmacists who hold the same passion for ambulatory care that I do.
