Why Cone: I love the people and the culture here that having fun is essential. Cone is unique in that we place caring for each other at the same level of importance as caring for our patients. Cone is also a great place to grow as a clinician because the environment is so supportive.

Joshua Tessin, PharmD, ASQ-CQPA

PGY1 Pharmacy Administration
Moses Cone Memorial Hospital
MS Candidate 2021

Education: Samford University

Hometown: Homewood, Alabama

Residency Research: The intervention of a clinical pharmacist on discharge using predictive analytics to identify high-risk readmission patient populations.

Practice Interests: Family medicine, pharmacy administration, quality and process improvement, high-reliability team development, Lean and Six Sigma methodologies, statistical process control

Why Cone: The Cone Health Culture is what brought me here and will keep me here. Everyone I met during my interview was excited to be at their job. They loved what they did each day, took ownership of their designated area, and pushed continually to improve to progress patient care. This resonated immediately with my passion for quality and process improvement. I loved the robustness of a community hospital and the ability to re-engineer operations on the fly when necessary. Further, I enjoyed my community hospital rotation during my fourth year pharmacy rotations, which included rounding with medical residents in the family medicine teaching service. I was very pleased to find the same opportunity at Cone Health. The culture of Cone Health makes the difficulties and challenges of pharmacy residency a much smoother transition from student to practicing clinician.
