PGY1 and PGY2 Combined or PGY2 Health System Pharmacy Administration Residency
Previous education: University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Pharmacy
Short Bio: I was born in Madison, WI, raised near Dallas, TX, and graduated high school in Sun Prairie, WI. After pharmacy school, I worked as an Inpatient Clinical Pharmacist for one year at Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center while my wife completed her pharmacy residency. After working as a pharmacist I started my PGY1/2 Health System Pharmacy Administration Residency. I enjoy everything Wisconsin (fish fry, Badgers, festivals, home brewing, boating, etc).
Factors Considered Most Important When Choosing Residency: There were numerous factors for me that attracted me to the program. One of the main factors was the people. Aurora has a plethora of great mentors, preceptors, leaders, and role models to work with and learn from that will make any residency experience a success.
Why Aurora? Aurora is a large organization with a well-established residency program. Having an interest in administration, the PGY-1/PGY-2 program in Health Administration offered several opportunities to develop both clinical and administrative skills through a wide variety of rotations and rotation sites and the opportunity to work with industry leaders. Aurora continues to evolve with the changes in the industry, and I am excited to be a part of it.
Current rotations: Pharmacy Operations, Health-System Pharmacy Leadership, Ambulatory Care Services, Clinical Services Administration, Pharmacy Informatics, Pharmacy Supply Chain, Pharmacy Recruiting
Year-Long Project: Assess the impact of a pharmacy practice model redesign
Future Plans: Successfully complete my PGY1 & PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residency. Start my MBA coursework. Enjoy my new house.
