What drew you to pursue this specific area of pharmacy?

I like the wide variety of rotations that are offered (in this residency.) I also like the affiliation with University of Georgia (UGA) College of Pharmacy, where I will have the opportunity to precept UGA APPE and IPPE pharmacy students.

What do you hope to gain from the experience?

I hope to expand my clinical knowledge and gain valuable patient care experiences in a variety of settings. I also want to further develop my communication and leadership skills. Those can be applied to any practice setting and increase my personal and professional confidence as a healthcare professional.

What is your long-term goal in pharmacy?

My long-term goals include working as a board-certified clinical pharmacist at a teaching hospital and precepting students.
