Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I chose to complete a residency because I believe there is a great deal of potential growth left in our profession and if I want to be a part of the generation of pharmacists that is reaching for that highest potential I need thorough training in patient care through an integrated healthcare team model, mentoring of student pharmacists, and leadership training from my preceptors. Through my research I felt I could receive the training I need to be the best pharmacist I can be through residency training. Through my experiences over this year I plan to build my foundation of confidence in patient care, and expand my network so that I can begin my first appointment as a pharmacist with the skills and mentors I need to be successful.
Why Ohio State?
I chose to continue my journey as a Buckeye because of the vast array of opportunities and the innovative practice and compensation models that pharmacists are practicing in at Ohio State. I knew I could learn not only about patient care through my experience at Ohio State but how pharmacists here are working towards value based metric models so that we are providing our patients with the most optimal level of care. I chose Ohio State so that I could learn from experts in the field of pharmacy and academia how to be a leader of the next generation of pharmacists.
