    Why did I choose to complete a residency?

    I wanted to complete a residency so that one day I am able to help a larger population of patients than I would be able to as just a normal community pharmacist. I want to help create and implement services that will impact patients all over the country to help them live healthier lives. I have a large passion to learn and feel that a residency will give me the opportunity to learn from some of the best pharmacists in the field. By completing a residency, I will grow in my areas of greatest weakness and be challenged everyday to be the best pharmacist I can be. 

     Why Ohio State?

    Ohio State’s Master of Science Community Care Residency is very unique and one of the best in the country. The residency program is paired with Kroger where I will be working with some of the best Community Pharmacist that will help me continue to build my clinical knowledge as well as my managerial skills. While the program mainly focuses on community pharmacy, The Ohio State College of Pharmacy gives residents the opportunity to have elective experiences in other aspects of pharmacy, such as ambulatory care. This was very important to me since ambulatory care is a passion of mine along with community pharmacy. One of the amazing parts about Ohio State’s Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences with an emphasis in Health-System Administration classes, is the course work connects with the residency program to help bring together what I will learn in the classroom with experiences I will encounter in the real world. As the MS Community Care resident I have the privilege to be part of many residency cohorts that will bring friendships that will last a lifetime. 

     

  • Adam Smith

    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.

    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.
