Professional Growth

"I chose the UR residency program because I felt that this residency offered diverse experiences in ambulatory care and specialty pharmacy, two areas of pharmacy that I feel passionate about. I was excited about the opportunity to collaborate on a healthcare team, most specifically in primary care. I also am looking forward to exposure to various areas of specialty pharmacy and becoming more familiar with specialty disease states. Overall, the residency program offers a multitude of new and exciting experiences, as well as a strong foundation to shape me into a well-rounded clinical pharmacist."
