EXCERPT | Q&A with a Pediatric Pharmacotherapy PGY-2 Pharmacy Resident

Pharmacy Times - December 21, 2017

Question: Why did you decide to pursue a PGY-1 and PGY-2 pharmacy residency?
Answer: In my last year of pharmacy school, I completed the KNIGHT ScholaRx program at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey. This program consisted of a diversified block of advanced pharmacy practice experiences, longitudinal assignments, and a clinical research project. For the first time in my training, I was exposed to hospital pharmacy and many clinical practice areas, including pediatrics. My preceptors and experiences at this institution motivated me to pursue residency training in order to strengthen my clinical knowledge in a challenging yet supportive environment.
