“Why did I choose to complete a residency?”
As a community pharmacist, I believe we have a crucial role to play in the lives of patients. We are often the most accessible members of the healthcare team and serve as an important liaison between patients, primary care providers, hospitals, and home. I chose to pursue a residency in community care because I want to advance the practice of community pharmacy and develop the skills to create innovative pharmacy services. Additionally, I am interested in sharing my knowledge and experience with future pharmacists through teaching and serving as a preceptor.
“Why Ohio State?”
I have been a Buckeye for eight years. The connections I have made with faculty, pharmacists and students around Columbus and Ohio State have been invaluable to me. As a result, I knew Ohio State would provide me with the mentorship and clinical growth that I was looking for in a residency program. In the future, I know I will have the backing of a strong Ohio State alumni network that will support me and help me advance my career as a pharmacist.
