    I chose to pursue a residency to advance my therapeutic knowledge and strengthen my confidence in providing patient care. Additionally, residency training will help me further develop my clinical interests and prepare me for specialized training.

  • Garrett Lambert

    PGY1 Community Resident

    • The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

     I chose to complete a residency because I felt that it offered me a path to the practice setting that I was most interested in. Community and ambulatory care are passions of mine, as is direct patient care. Many community and ambulatory residencies offer opportunities for direct patient care, even more direct than a typical outpatient position, because they allow you the time to make deeper connections with patients over a longer period of time. A residency offers all of that, plus the opportunity to take on creative projects to improve patient care.

     “Why Ohio State?”

     I was already comfortable with Ohio State having completed my bachelor’s degree and my PharmD at Ohio State, but what really drew me in was the wealth of opportunities available to me at Ohio State. No matter what experience you are looking to get out of a residency, Ohio State can find it for you. The program has a long history and therefore a lot of graduates of the program. Many of these graduates have remained involved with the program and have helped to provide a variety of experiences that may not be available at other residencies.

    PGY1 Pharmacy Resident

    • The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

    Why did I choose to complete a residency?

    I knew from the very beginning of pharmacy school that I wanted to complete a residency and eventually practice as a clinical specialist. I love being involved with patients in acute care settings and being a part of the medical team to best care for each and every patient. Through residency, I knew I would be able to gain clinical knowledge and progress personally and professionally to ultimately reach my career goals.

    Why Ohio State?

    Since completing both my undergraduate and PharmD degree at Ohio State, I knew the preceptors I would encounter and learn from during my PGY1 year are exceptional and excellent teachers. I knew I would be learning from the best if I completed my residency here; I also knew I would be learning alongside other outstanding residents with our large program. I also chose Ohio State due to the numerous opportunities that are here at the medical center, including privileging and credentialing of pharmacists, etc.. Lastly, Columbus has become home to me and is the best city in the state! Go bucks!

     

  • Michael Murphy

    PGY1 Pharmacy Resident in Ambulatory Care Settings

    • The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy

    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.
