Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I chose to complete a residency to further develop my clinical skills in order to practice pharmacy in a hospital setting. As a student I really enjoyed the opportunities provided to me in my clinical rotations at various hospitals. I quickly learned I had a passion for practicing pharmacy in this setting and knew I needed further development to become the best practitioner for the patients I encounter. Additionally, residency affords me the opportunity to refine skills in areas such as research, working in teams, and continuing to develop my presentation skills.
Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
There are various reasons I chose to complete a residency at St. Joseph’s hospital. First and foremost the rotations offered here provided me the best opportunity to continue to build my skills as a practitioner in my areas of interest. St. Joseph’s has many different rotation sites and allowed me to tailor the residency to fit my educational needs. I am excited to have the opportunity to improve my skills as a practitioner in pediatrics and critical care. Furthermore, during my interview the team at St. Joseph’s seemed to enjoy their jobs and the work environment. I wanted to find a practice site where I fit in with the team and could not only grow as a practitioner but have fun while doing so, and I have found that at St. Joseph’s.
