    “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.

    Pharmacy Advancement Fellow

    • The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy

    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.

     

  • Marissa Stoffel

    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.

     

     

  • Heather Johnson

    PGY1 Pharmacy Resident in Ambulatory Care Settings

    • The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    I decided to complete a residency because I wanted to gain more experience in ambulatory care settings. From shadowing and rotations, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in ambulatory care and that a residency would start me on this path. I was also excited about the opportunities for developing my research and teaching abilities and the overall professional growth that would occur.

    “Why Ohio State?”

    Ohio State stood out to me at the residency showcase and throughout the whole interview process. All of the residents and preceptors I met were passionate about teaching, advocacy, and patient care. The opportunity to focus my experience in an ambulatory care setting as a PGY-1 was important to me, and the innovative practice model at the General Internal Medicine Clinics stood out to me. I was drawn to the longitudinal opportunities here as well as the wide variety of electives offered by the Medical Center. The opportunity to become a Buckeye was also very exciting. Go Bucks!
