    • 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?” I chose to complete a PGY2 residency to gain the training and confidence needed to obtain a clinical specialist position in oncology.

    “Why Ohio State?” I sought advice from many different people before deciding on OSU for my PGY2 training. Past professors, pharmacists I’ve worked with, and even different drug reps and MSLs all applauded OSU’s cancer center and pharmacy department. The opportunities for growth available at The James are seemingly limitless, and the preceptors are all very well trained.

    “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.
