“Why do you enjoy precepting pharmacy residents?”
During residency, each pharmacy resident makes a leap from student to healthcare provider; participating in that leap is one of the most rewarding parts of my everyday practice. I love to help residents develop confidence in their own innovative practice styles and create the future to which they aspire through personal career advancement and the advancement of our profession. Each year there is a defining moment where a resident realizes they’ve made the transformation from student to practitioner; that defining moment is one of the most rewarding and inspiring things a resident and preceptor can experience.
In addition to impacting the growth of the resident, precepting is beneficial to my growth and practice as well. Our residents teach me something new every day and inspire me to provide outstanding care for our patients and excellent education to our students. Residency training at The Ohio State University not only impacts residents and preceptors, but it also expands pharmacy practice and improves patient care at The Ohio State University General Internal Medicine clinics each year. My goal is to train outstanding healthcare providers who will go out and change the profession and while fulfilling this goal, I am fortunate to learn from, be inspired by, and have fun with our pharmacy residents. It’s because of this, that precepting pharmacy residents is so incredibly rewarding.
