Why Residency?: I chose to pursue an administration residency as I believe it was a necessary step in my development to achieve my goals of becoming a health-system pharmacy leader. Cone Health is the perfect practice environment for me as it combines both the benefits of a large teaching hospital and health-system with a community and caring environment. I also sought an administration program that provided residents with a strong clinical foundation and prepared their residents for BCPS certification.

Moses Cone Memorial Hospital

MS Candidate 2019

Education: Eshelman School of Pharmacy; University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (PharmD 2017; MS Candidate 2019)

Hometown: Cary, North Carolina

Residency Research: Evaluation of the accuracy of different methods used to calculate ideal body weights in the pediatric population

Why Residency?: I chose Cone Health because of the people. Everyone in the pharmacy team and the hospital as a whole is always so friendly. People you pass in the hallways have a smile on their face and look happy to be here. I chose the HSPA program at Cone because it is a newer program that gives me the flexibility to mold my experience and help develop the program for the future. The program also provides me a very solid foundation as a clinician during the first year. Furthermore, although this residency is very challenging and time consuming, Cone Health does a great job of supporting you and making sure you can still enjoy yourself outside the work.
