Why I chose Providence: I chose Holy Family for its unique combination of all the things I was looking for in a residency program. Even through virtual interviews I could tell that the pharmacy staff holds their residents in high regard, and truly enjoy helping them become well-rounded clinical pharmacists. The hospital is large enough to get exposure to interesting and unique cases but small enough to feel like you are part of a community here. Overall, it is a supportive and encouraging environment to learn to be a competent and indispensable member of the healthcare team.

Why I chose Providence:

After volunteering and completing rotations at Providence institutions in the past, I knew I wanted to do my residency with Providence. Holy Family provides a supportive work environment, offering a wide variety of rotations ranging from critical care to oncology. Each staff member cares about residents' success, and the department has a team of great preceptors that are very knowledgeable and invested in educating the residents. Residents get the opportunity to work with an interprofessional care team to provide high quality patient care. From day one, I have felt supported by the pharmacy department, and I know Holy Family will prepare me to be a well-rounded clinical pharmacist and will offer many opportunities to grow in my career.
