  • Adam Smith-MSY2

    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.

     

  • Craig Michael

    PGY2 Pharmacy Informatics Resident

    • The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

    Why did I choose to complete a residency?

    I knew I wanted to go through residency ever since my first year in pharmacy school, and I’ve been looking forward to completing a PGY-2 informatics program ever since my fourth year. I love the clinical science of medicine and working with patients (and I’ll miss them), but I really enjoy the logistics involved in pharmacy informatics. Leveraging technology to improve health care is fascinating to me. We have so many tools at our disposal. Yes, we can accomplish task “X” with current technology, but how do you make it seamless? How do you make it elegant? How do you make it so someone will want to use it? These are my favorite questions to answer, and I’m here to learn how to answer them.

     Why Ohio State?”

    Before my interview for the PGY-2 program, I knew OSU would grant me the experience and exposure that I was seeking in pharmacy informatics. It is a large, forward-thinking healthcare organization with a strong pharmacy informatics team. After my interview, I knew that OSU was the fit for me. Completely nervous for the interview, I met the informatics team and suddenly felt comfortable with them as we talked and learned more about each other. Not only that, but the team members have all been here for multiple years – a sign that the team was cohesive and one I’d like to be a part of.

  • Marissa Stoffel-MSY2

    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.

     

     

  • Allie Dolan

    PGY2 Pain Management & Palliative Care Residency

    • The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    I chose to pursue a second year of residency because I have a passion for palliative care and pain management, and a year of residency focusing in these fields will provide the best training for me to become a well-rounded clinician. I am looking forward to becoming a leader in this specialty and advocating for my profession throughout this year of residency and beyond. I know this could only become possible by completing a PGY2 and this year will set a solid foundation for my future.

     “Why Ohio State?”

    It was obvious that Ohio State was a perfect fit for me. The Pain Management and Palliative Care program is robust, with a focus on palliative care and a unique hospice component that fit my desire to care for end-of-life patients in my PGY2 year. It was obvious in my interview that the preceptors of my program would treat me as a colleague, focusing on my development as a learner, but also giving me the autonomy to develop my own practice. They are very personable, helpful, and simply a fun gang to be around! The opportunities and learning experiences provided by Ohio State are unmatchable. I am so proud to be a Buckeye!
