When deciding on a pharmacy residency program, there were different factors that made CRMC my #1 choice. I was eager to be part of a teaching hospital in a Level 1 Trauma Center that had a diverse set of clinical rotations that would allow me to advance my clinical knowledge in different areas of pharmacy. In addition, being part of a pharmacy program with such knowledgeable, yet modest, preceptors that take great pride in in their profession and in teaching was one of the many distinctive and strongest components of this program. Furthermore, having a residency program that has a residency program director solely focused on the advancement and success of the residency program and its residents is what makes this program well organized, structured, and a strong learning environment to advance in the field of pharmacy. I am fortunate and excited to be part of CRMC pharmacy residency program and learn from such skilled pharmacists. –Dr. Mari Koshkakaryan (2015-2016)

After researching many different residency programs, Community Regional Medical Center quickly became my first choice due to the challenging variety of rotations offered, exceptional clinical staff and preceptors, and strong teaching affiliations with UCSF and UOP. I was looking for a program that would help develop my skills as a clinical pharmacist in a variety of practice settings including critical care, ambulatory care and pharmacy operations. This program is very well structured, ultimately providing a conducive learning environment, and is focused on giving back to the community through practicing cutting edge, evidence-based medicine. The whole pharmacy team is dedicated to providing exceptional patient care and is constantly striving to improve, ultimately providing residents with the ability to have a true impact on healthcare throughout their time at CRMC.   –Dr. Kailee Shearer (2015-2016)

When researching residency programs, I was looking for a program that offered strong rotations in critical care, the opportunity to further explore the pharmacy world of pediatrics, and the chance to strengthen my communication and teaching skills through participation on interdisciplinary teams. As an academic teaching institution that is a Level I trauma center and a regional burn center, and with a Level III NICU and one of the busiest emergency departments in the state, I found everything I was looking for in the pharmacy residency program at Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC). In addition, the passionate preceptors create optimal learning opportunities, and the diverse population CRMC serves allows for enriching and fulfilling experiences. I am confident that completing a residency at CRMC is the perfect step that will help me to prepare for possible additional postgraduate training and to obtain a position as an influential, proactive clinical practitioner in the future. I am excited to join the CRMC pharmacy team! –Dr. Laurie Wright  (2015-2016)
