Why did I choose to complete a residency?
After finishing pharmacy school, I felt that I had a good understanding of foundational concepts and clinical requirements of an inpatient pharmacist. However, I knew that I lacked the experiences that can only be attained from hands-on work. I wanted to learn how to practice at the top of my professional license from those who already have experiences in the field. Residencies provide an environment of continual educational and professional development by fusing your clinical knowledge with the demands of a complex practice setting. A driving factor for my decision to apply for residency is that the fundamental purpose of a residency is based around continual feedback from qualified preceptors and colleagues who all share in the sole purpose of promoting your skills and advancing your abilities.

Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital at BayCare?
What drew me to St. Joseph’s was the opportunity to pursue my passion in pediatrics. Joe’s is one of the few facilities with an attached Pediatrics hospital AND an attached Women’s hospital on site. Another big factor that made St. Joseph’s feel like the right choice for me was how the previous residents described the learning experience as flexible and tailored to your interests. The moment that made it impossible for me to want to go anywhere else occurred during my residency interview. Even though the interview took place via an online platform, the energy, passion, and comradery from the residency team was evident. The welcome they gave me cut through my nervousness and truly made me feel at home and the obvious respect and compassion they shared for one another demonstrated the environment that I could see myself growing in.
