    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

     Residencies offer a comprehensive and intense opportunity to develop as a clinician and leader. The one-of-a-kind experiences I gain during residency will equip me with the practical tools necessary to excel as a pharmacist, implement change in the profession, and impact the health of my patients.

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    I found that a community residency perfectly paired my love of teaching and my passion for patient care while providing me with countless opportunities to learn, network, and grow as a new pharmacist. Completing a residency enables me to receive a teaching certificate which will aid immensely in my goal to pursue a career in academia, while acquiring firsthand experience in caring for an underserved population and discerning the inner workings of a Charitable Pharmacy.

    “Why Ohio State?”

    I was largely drawn to Ohio State initially due to their outstanding reputation and large teaching component, both of which I felt would be extremely beneficial to my future. However, my rationale behind choosing OSU as my resident home was the sense of community which was actively portrayed through my interactions with residents, preceptors and faculty. I was in search of a strong support network as I embarked on what is known to be a challenging journey and that was exactly what I found at OSU.

    • 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.

    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.
