  • Marissa Stoffel-MSY1

    Health-System Pharmacy Adminstration Resident

    • The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    I chose to complete a residency to learn and grow in an environment where I am challenged as well as supported by fellow pharmacy residents, preceptors, and the leadership. Not only did I want to further my leadership skills, but my clinical knowledge. An individual with a strong background in pharmacotherapy and team-based patient care will be more adapted for leadership within health-system pharmacy, as this teamwork is imperative throughout your career. 

     “Why Ohio State?”

    I chose The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for the people and the mentorship they provide. It is evident the Pharmacy Residents are a valued group within the OSU family, which does not change following completion of the residency. The extensive alumni network allows residents to make connections throughout the country, sharing their experiences and knowledge to further advance the profession. The Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residency at The Ohio State University is a legacy that will only continue to grow, providing unparalleled opportunities for their residents.



  • Laura Rowley

    PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident

    • Uptown Pharmacy

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?” I chose to do a residency because of the various opportunities to grow both personally and professionally. Not only am I able to begin my career as a pharmacist, but I am able to gain experience in both research and teaching.

     “Why Ohio State?”  By doing a PGY1 at The Ohio State University, I am able to interact with and learn from a number of highly experienced and passionate mentors. These mentors include pharmacists at my site, at the college, and those that we are able to work with throughout the community. I have learned so much after just one month, and am really looking forward to to the exciting year ahead. 


  • Lauren Beauchamp

    PGY1 Acute Care Pharmacy Resident

    • The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?” Completing a pharmacy residency was something that I had set as a goal of mine on day one of pharmacy school.  I knew that I wanted to be directly involved in patient care clinically in the hospital setting, and completing residency training will help me to become a more confident and knowledgeable pharmacist.  I believe that the real-life experience I will gain throughout residency training will be imperative and invaluable in the treatment of future patients by helping me to develop critical thinking processes that can be further developed and shared with future coworkers, residents, and students. 

    “Why Ohio State?” The autonomy provided to pharmacists at Ohio State is unlike many other institutions and allows pharmacists to practice at the top of their licenses.  When I visited Ohio State for my interview, it was very clear that the pharmacists had all developed skills outside the stereotypical role of a pharmacist, which is something I hope to learn in residency and carry on throughout my career.  What I really treasure most about Ohio State in addition to the excellent residency program and ability to challenge myself throughout a variety of experiences and rotations is how involved everyone is in supporting you to reach your goals.  As early as my interview, it was clear to see how invested preceptors are in the residents and students in order to help us achieve our aspirations, which is invaluable as we learn how to navigate the role of pharmacist and find our place in the growing field of pharmacy.

    PGY2 Ambulatory Care Resident

    • The Ohio State University

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    I chose to complete a second year of residency to put myself in the best position to advance the essential skills of a life-long learner in the area I am most passionate about: ambulatory care.

     “Why Ohio State?”

    Ohio State embraces a progressive atmosphere in the field of pharmacy and my program emphasizes a balance between the areas of leadership, teaching, research, community outreach, and interdisciplinary team-based patient care.  It has everything I was looking for in a program!
