Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I choose residency because I love facing and overcoming new challenges. I have always believed that residency will provide me with the rigorous training that will help me develop the needed skills and knowledge to become a great clinical pharmacist. All of which will help me achieve my ultimate goal of providing exceptional patient care. It is commonly said that residency equals three years of experience and this couldn’t excite me more to complete this amazing and challenging year.
Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
St. Joseph’s Hospital is one of the best hospitals in Tampa, Florida and it is well known for caring, respecting and valuing all patients. This is kind of environment I wanted to be learn and grow personally and professionally at. I joined the St. Joseph Hospital pharmacy residency program for many reasons including: the experienced and knowledgeable yet humble and welcoming pharmacy team, the variety of rotations and experiences that I will get to see, and the ability to complete rotations at any other BayCare facility. Lastly, one of my main interest is mental health and St. Joseph Hospital has a very unique and rare psych pharmacy practice at the Behavioral Health Center which I will get the great opportunity of training at soon.
