Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I am driven to complete a health-system pharmacy administration and leadership (HSPA-L) focused residency program because it parallels my aspirations as a pharmacist. I have a desire to serve, a passion for leadership, and am eager to learn. An HSPA-L program will provide me with the clinical experiences to help build upon the foundational knowledge attained during pharmacy school. In turn, this will allow me to become a competent and confident practitioner. Also, this type of residency training will provide me with the managerial, operational and leadership experiences to help me develop into a to future leader in the healthcare setting.
