    Health-System Pharmacy Administration Resident

    • The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    A residency provides an opportunity to learn and gain valuable experience. It takes what is taught in pharmacy school and makes it more real world and applicable. I think that a residency is an opportunity to grow clinically, professionally, and gain further critical thinking skills.

    “Why Ohio State?”

    For me, Ohio State provided an amazing track record of success, and an extensive network to grow professionally. My interests are in administration, but I also see the value in gaining a strong clinical background. The MS program at Ohio State emphasizes the importance of being a good clinician, which I think is both important and unique.

  • Kelsey Schmuhl

    PGY1 Community Care Resident

    • The Ohio State University

    “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.

  • Adam Smith-MSY1

    Health-System Pharmacy Administration Resident

    • The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

     I chose to complete a residency because I wanted to continue to build upon my clinical skill set as a licensed pharmacist. Through unique experiences as a student, I also had a growing interest in pharmacy leadership and management. The combined PGY1 & PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residency Program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center perfectly fit my needs and allowed me to pursue both interests.

     “Why Ohio State?”

     Ohio State is widely known across the country for its Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residency Program. Ohio State’s strong clinical focus during the PGY1 year paired with their prominent history of building successful pharmacy leaders made the program a very appealing destination for me. During my interview, I was enamored by the rich history of the program and the strong sense of pride displayed throughout the entire Department of Pharmacy.  I left my interview knowing Ohio State would provide me with the clinical and administrative skill sets necessary to positively impact patient care while leading the advancement of our profession.

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?” There are many reasons I chose to complete a community-based PGY1 residency. Residencies allow us to grow into confident practitioners by challenging us as leaders and practitioners. Residencies provide the opportunity to drive-forward and grow the profession through innovative research and service development.
