Why did you choose to pursue a residency?

After taking several oncology rotations, I knew I wanted to work in this field. I decided to pursue two years of residency to gain the clinical skills and confidence to serve the oncology patient population.

What attracted you to the Froedtert & MCW pharmacy residency program?

After working with several pharmacists who were alumni of the Froedtert & MCW residency program, I was very impressed by their knowledge and comfort in their clinical specialties. I was drawn to the wide variety of ambulatory care clinics experiences and how integrated the pharmacists are in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.
