Risk Factors for Vancomycin-Associated Nephrotoxicity in the Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Population

Why did you choose to pursue a residency?

I really enjoy working with a healthcare team and using my clinical knowledge to assess and treat each patient individually. I knew I wanted to work with a specific patient population, and pursuing residency allowed me to take that path.

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

The Froedtert & MCW pharmacy residency program has numerous unique opportunities because of the many disciplines available at the institution. All of which allows for a very customizable year, no matter what your interest may be. Oncology wise, Froedtert Hospital has so many opportunities on the inpatient side, as well as in the ambulatory setting. Practicing in both areas is becoming more important for pharmacists in oncology practice, and Froedtert Hospital sets you up for success.

Favorite Things to Do in Milwaukee

Milwaukee is a great city to explore! There are multiple professional sports teams, events that take place all over the city and down by the lake, there are enough breweries to go to a new one every day, and Chicago is just a short car or train ride away!
