LMH’s Pharmacy Residency Program

LMH’s Pharmacy Residency Program


Lawrence Memorial Hospital now brings
you better health. It’s really crucial to have a residency that’s unique from
other programs. Residencies are very competitive now, and so we have to market
ourselves to stand out among all the different residency programs, and I think
we do that in multiple ways. I think we do that, one, in our patient care. I chose
this hospital because their focus is on patient care, and I really wanted to be
able to explain my clinical knowledge in that aspect, and I felt like LMH was
really the place to do it. It has a community feel. We’re all a family here
and we all work together. And I wanted to be at the bedside, and learn
with the doctors, and be able to make those changes for that patient right
then and there. The need to have a pharmacist at the bedside with a
physician, with the nurses, with the families, and with the patient is the
best way to provide patient care, and we’ve been doing that for a long time
here, and this is what we promote as a program, and this is, I think, probably the
main thing that attracts residents to our program from literally all over the
country. Yeah, I actually looked all over the region for places to do a residency,
and ended up applying to about ten places and interviewing at quite a few
of those, and when I came here I just felt that, I felt the community vibe that
this hospital has, and I felt like I was very comfortable and supported by the
people that were here. I do really enjoy patient interaction, direct patient
interaction, and that’s something that I felt like I would get a lot of here, and
I definitely have. And then I also really like the opportunities that were
available to me. Management is something that I’ve been interested in and there’s
a strong management component to this residency, there’s medication safety. We want to advance our the practice of pharmacy. We want them to go out and be
leaders, and make sure that the practice of pharmacy that we have at this hospital
can go and grow in other hospitals as well. I think the experiences that I’ve had here this year already, even though I’m
not finished with school, really opened a lot of
doors for me in the future.
