Gary Houchard, PharmD
“Why did I choose to complete a residency?”
I chose to pursue PGY2 residency training in pain management and palliative care due to the devastating impact that both undertreated and excessively treated pain can have on patient outcomes. It is a challenging and evolving specialty that I believe pharmacists can make a large contribution to.
“Why Ohio State?”
I chose to pursue this training at The Ohio State University based on the knowledge, skills, and diverse experiences of the pain and palliative care preceptors, who share an obvious passion for teaching and mentoring. This, along with OSU’s long history of excellence and ingenuity in healthcare practice, made this the ideal program for me to further develop my knowledge and skills in this specialty.
