PGY1 Community Pharmacy Residency – Aurora Health Care Metro, Inc. Milwaukee, WI
Previous education: PharmD from University of Wisconsin-Madison
Short Bio: I am originally from Hartland, WI. I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for my pre-pharmacy coursework and for pharmacy school. In my free time, I like to spend time outdoors, travel, and hang out with my family and friends.
Factors Considered Most Important When Choosing Residency: I wanted a program that would provide me with a variety of experiences, including time spent in a community pharmacy providing clinical services and in ambulatory clinics. I also wanted a larger residency class that would allow me to share ideas with other residents.
Why Aurora? I loved the enthusiasm of the program director and of all the preceptors and was very excited about the variety of rotations offered. I liked having the opportunity to gain experience as a preceptor for pharmacy students and to interact with a larger residency class.
Current rotations: Clinical Services, Immunizations, Medication Safety, Practice Management, Family Practice Clinic, Staffing
Year-Long Project: Developing and implementing a post-discharge follow-up program for heart failure patients.
Future Plans: I hope to provide patient care in ambulatory clinics and also work in a community pharmacy setting, providing clinical services.
