Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I chose to pursue a residency for the opportunity to continue my professional development and sharpen my skill set as a clinician in efforts to best serve the patients in my community. I have always known that I wanted to work as a clinical pharmacist, and residency offers the clinical experience I am looking for in a variety of different settings and specialties vital to my foundation as a well-rounded clinician.
Why did I choose Morton Plant Hospital at BayCare?
During my APPE rotations, I had the opportunity to spend several months across many BayCare institutions learning from some of the most empowering and clinically up-to-date preceptors who challenged me to develop professionally daily, thus making BayCare the health system I wanted to be a part of to further my clinical education as a resident. I also loved the fact that Morton Plant Hospital offered clinically robust learning experiences in areas not commonly found in most residency programs such as cardiothoracic surgery. My rotations within BayCare were both inspirational and foundational in my goals as a pharmacist, and as I researched more institutions, I became really excited at the idea of being a part of a health system that truly embodied their values of trust, dignity, respect, responsibility, and excellence.
