OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center offers a great variety of rotations for me to develop as a pharmacist in a wide array of areas. What was appealing to me was the presence and opportunity to learn from an Antimicrobial Stewardship OSF System pharmacy coordinator as well opportunities to rotate in oncology, emergency medicine, and a Neuro Burn Trauma unit. With a smaller program, I know that I can have the rotations that I want and an agreeable schedule. Medical Staff are very friendly and collaborative, and there is no hesitancy to look forward to what pharmacy has to contribute.

My current areas of interest include transitions of care, internal medicine, and emergency medicine. I plan to work as a clinical pharmacist in the greater Rockford area after completion of the PGY1 residency.
I was originally drawn to the PGY1 residency program at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center because of the shared values in serving others and working with intergrity and compassion. The pharmacy leadership and preceptors have shown to provide learning experiences and an educational environment that will foster my growth as a pharmacist. This residency program has the rotations I was looking for that will prepare me to be a clinical pharmacist. Overall, I am looking forward to working alongside pharmacists, physicians, and nurses at OSF to provide great care to the patients we serve.
