Why did you choose to pursue a residency?

I chose to pursue a residency because I knew that it would be an excellent opportunity to gain insight into a broad range of inpatient practice areas. Advanced training is the best way to stay relevant in a complex and rapidly evolving work place.

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

I completed two clinical rotations at Froedtert Hospital as a student and was extremely impressed with the culture and professionalism of the program. I knew the interdisciplinary collaboration I witnessed between healthcare providers at this institution would make for a great environment to learn and practice pharmacy.
