    • Type of Residency Training Completed at OSU:
      Pharmacy Practice (PGY1)

    “Why” was completing a residency at Ohio State beneficial to your career?”

    I would say my time at OSUMC was an accelerated, intense introduction to the world of clinical pharmacy and the academic biomedical apparatus. I learned about appropriate and pragmatic application of pharmacotherapy across diverse practice areas; this has benefitted my career in the field of drug discovery and development. I also learned “soft skills,” like how to effectively interact with colleagues of a varying nature and to be part of a team (“Code Blues” come to mind). The pharmacy administration rotations exposed me to basic tenants I’ve built upon through my career, and often use in my responsibilities as a core laboratory director. Finally, the relationships I formed with preceptors and fellow residents endure to this day. I am grateful to have had my experiences at OSUMC, and to call myself an alum of the program.

    Any particular career accomplishments you would like to highlight? Publications, Awards, Grant Funding, etc?

    I was recently an integral part of a team responsible for moving SJCRH’s first ever novel small molecule investigational new drug toward the clinic. The antimalarial SJ733 is slated for a single ascending dose Phase I study in healthy subjects in early 2016.

    I was a co-author on several recent manuscripts in Cancer Cell and Cell Reports, both of which are high-impact journals in the field of oncology research.

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    Residency training is a unique opportunity for an individual to fully invest in his or her learning in order to gain additional knowledge, to refine clinical and communication skills, and to empower him to provide exceptional patient care. I am looking forward to learning as much as possible in order to have a successful career and to become a versatile, well-rounded pharmacist.  

    “Why Ohio State?”

    Ohio State has a rich history of producing high caliber pharmacy practitioners, and the culture at OSU is one that encourages clinicians to practice at the highest level of their licenses for the common goal of improving patient care. Furthermore, the myriad of clinical and research opportunities across numerous specialty areas affords residents ample opportunities to be challenged as clinicians, researchers, and educators.​

    Why do you enjoy precepting pharmacy residents?

    One of the reasons I returned to an academic medical center following residency training was the
    opportunity to be integrated into the pharmacy residency program as a preceptor. I enjoy taking
    residents on rotation and watching my role as a preceptor change from providing direct instruction to
    modeling and coaching to facilitating. Being a preceptor also allows me to give back to the profession by sharing my knowledge with others. Patient care, teaching, and research are all equally important
    aspects of clinical pharmacy at OSUWMC and remain part of the foundation we try to lay as effective
    preceptors for each of our residents. One of my proudest and most rewarding moments as a preceptor
    was when my resident’s research project was accepted for publication in a major journal. Nothing
    excites me more than to watch residents grow into true practice leaders whether that be over the
    course of a one month clinical rotation or a yearlong residency research project.
