    “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.

    Why did I choose to complete a residency?

    ​​I pursued a residency to gain broad clinical experiences, improve research skills, experience diverse rotations, and gain a strong network of clinical pharmacists.

    Why Ohio State?

    The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center​ (OSUWMC) allows me to practice at the top of my pharmacist’s license. OSUWMC provides diverse rotation experiences, strong clinical preceptors, rich research experiences, opportunities to precept student pharmacists, and the chance to train with a large residency class. I think the number one selling point of OSUWMC are the people. Each preceptor, faculty, and mentor genuinely invest in the residents to help each of us achieve our career goals. I would highly recommend OSUWMC residency programs!

    PGY1 Health-System Resident

    • The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

    “Why did I chose to complete a residency?”

    My interest in hematology/oncology began during research experiences as an undergraduate student.  After pharmacy school, I knew that specializing in hematology/oncology pharmacy was what I wanted to do in my career, which requires completion of residency.  I also appreciate the added research and teaching experiences that a residency program provides.

     “Why Ohio State?”

    The James Cancer Hospital is a high-volume, nationally-respected cancer center that is at the forefront of cancer research and treatment.  The pharmacy specialists are truly experts in their fields and the highly specialized practice at OSU allows for learning from preceptors who have significant depth of knowledge about each specific type of cancer.  I like having a large class of co-residents because I learn from them, grow with them, and rely on them for support.  I chose to complete my residency at Ohio State because I believe the training I am receiving here will prepare me to excel in any oncology pharmacy practice in the future.

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    Residency training is a unique opportunity for an individual to fully invest in his or her learning in order to gain additional knowledge, to refine clinical and communication skills, and to empower him to provide exceptional patient care. I am looking forward to learning as much as possible in order to have a successful career and to become a versatile, well-rounded pharmacist.

    Ohio State has a rich history of producing high caliber pharmacy practitioners, and the culture at OSU is one that encourages clinicians to practice at the highest level of their licenses for the common goal of improving patient care. Furthermore, the myriad of clinical and research opportunities across numerous specialty areas affords residents ample opportunities to be challenged as clinicians, researchers, and educators.​
