PGY1 Program: Methodist University Hospital (Memphis, TN)
Professional Interests: Pediatrics, Critical Care
Why did you choose to pursue a PGY2 pediatric residency? I have had the dream of being a pediatric pharmacist even prior to starting pharmacy school! I wanted to be able to make a difference in the lives of children and their families on a daily basis. The unique opportunities pediatric pharmacy offers through teaching to all ages and levels of education and the all-around teamwork attitude in a children's hospital made it easy for me to know that is where I wanted to practice.
What drew you to the pharmacy residency program at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital? When I interviewed at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, I immediately knew I wanted to train and practice there. The warmth and excitement all the preceptors brought in addition to the high acuity of patients that I knew I would see really drew me to the program. I could tell that the pharmacists were valued by their teams and they had an integrated model even within the department that again brings a teamwork culture that I wanted to work in.
