Residency Class of 2021-2022

Lexi Duce:

College of Pharmacy: University of Montana Skaggs School of Pharmacy

Hometown: Missoula, MT

Current Residency Project: Evaluation of the pharmacist’s role in pain management in a community hospital setting.

Why I chose Providence: I was drawn to Providence Holy Family Hospital after hearing how highly the past residents talked about the program. From my first day, I have been impressed with the dedication the pharmacy department has to training its residents. The hospital is large enough to see a wide variety of acute and critical care cases but also has a close-knit feeling. It is a great learning environment to further clinical skills and make the transition to working as an independent clinical pharmacist. At Holy Family, residents are given the opportunity to become a contributing member of the healthcare team.

Why I chose Providence:

I chose Providence Holy Family Hospital because it has excellent learning opportunities and postgraduate training that I felt would prepare me to be a successful, well-rounded clinical pharmacist. All the staff here are very welcoming and the hospital being a smaller institution affords the opportunity for a community feel while also being large enough for a well-rounded clinical experience. At Providence Holy Family Hospital, pharmacists play an integral role on the healthcare team and other providers turn to pharmacy for their clinical insight.There are many opportunities for growth and a wide-breadth of learning experiences available.
