Kelsy Combs

Kelsy Combs, PharmD

PGY2 Ambulatory Care

Triad Healthcare Network

Education: Eshelman School of Pharmacy; University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Asheville Campus)

Hometown: Crumpler, North Carolina

Residency Research: Quality Performance and Financial Implications of Integrating a Pharmacist in a Primary Care Clinic

Why Residency?: I chose Triad HealthCare Network (THN) because of the opportunity to train in an innovative health care delivery model. Being part of an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a unique feature to the residency program at THN compared to other ambulatory care PGY2 programs. I felt this was an opportunity to further develop myself as a pharmacist and also to learn how pharmacists can be integrated into an evolving healthcare system.

Giang Le

Giang Le, PharmD

PGY2 Neonatology

Women's Hospital of Greensboro

Education: Howard
University College of Pharmacy

Hometown: Beltsville, Maryland

Residency Research: Practice Improvement and Protocol Driver Practice Initiatives

Practice Interests: Neonatology

Why Residency: Pediatric
lectures were underrepresented in pharmacy school, but I have always been curious about disease states and the therapeutic options in this population. I had very positive experience at Children’s National Health System in Washington, DC as a student and wanted to pursue residency in Pediatrics after graduation. Upon my completion of a PGY1 residency at Holy Cross Hospital, I staffed full time in the NICU and decided to specialize in Neonatology. The PGY2 Neonatology at Cone Health Women’s Hospital presents unique opportunities to practice in a NICU (the only program in the nation). Thus, this training led to specialization and would contribute to my lifelong career goals.
