Current

Amolee Patel, PharmD

Pharmacy School
University of Illinois College of Pharmacy (Chicago/Rockford)

Career Interest
My current interests include infectious disease and antimicrobial stewardship, drug information, and internal medicine. I plan to complete a Pharmacy Graduate Year 2 (PGY-2) residency in one of the specialties before pursuing a career as a clinical pharmacist.

Why OSF?
All aspects of the PGY-1 residency program at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center (SAMC) aligned with my career goals, and I believe that it will help me build a strong foundation of knowledge with time and practice. 

The residency program at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center provides a variety of experiences that will allow me to develop into a well-rounded and independent clinical pharmacist.  Having the benefit of rotating through SAMC as a student also allowed me to witness the culture and commitment to patient care.  I was drawn to how progressive the interdisciplinary relations are for a community hospital and how dedicated the preceptors are to teaching residents and students to practice to the full potential of our profession.  In short, SAMC allows me to train and practice in the environment I want as a clinical pharmacist.

Career Interest
I am interested in pursuing a PGY-2 Residency in Infectious Disease, and I would like to specialize in HIV management and give back to the community living with HIV.

Why OSF?
Every pharmacy preceptor at OSF is very knowledgable and nurturing. Being part of this great team as a resident provides me numberous opportunities to grow and learn. Moreover, OSF has robust evidence based protocols and it is a great learning opportunity to practice evidence based medicine. Physicians and nursing are very welcoming and work well with the pharmacy team and I always feel that I can make a positive impact for our patients.
