Why I chose Providence: I chose Providence Sacred Heart because the program offers a variety of experiences, teaching opportunities, and rotations in a supportive learning environment. As a 644-bed, level II trauma tertiary medical center, Sacred Heart would provide me with ample learning opportunities to become a well-rounded pharmacist. I value the program’s affiliation with WSU and I am very excited to give back to the school and community. As residents, we are given the opportunity to precept students as well as participate in didactic lecture, journal club, lab, and topic discussion, which I firmly believe to be an exceptional way to reinforce concepts while refining teaching skills. I believe the combination of education, project opportunities, and clinical care will facilitate my development to be a strong clinical pharmacist and preceptor.
