Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC) offers a strong foundation in critical care, which is the primary reason I chose this program. CRMC is a Level 1 Trauma Center, and residents have the opportunity to choose among Medicine ICU, Trauma ICU, Burn ICU, and Neonatal ICU rotations. I trust that a well-organized PGY1 program such as CRMC will provide me with a high-quality learning experience and prepare me to be a competent practitioner. Also, the opportunity of precepting students from UCSF and UOP is very rewarding because it will further develop my leadership skills. I believe it will help me become a good preceptor in addition to being a clinical pharmacist since I would love to give back to the profession.

I chose Community Regional Medical Center’s PGY1 pharmacy residency program for several reasons. The program is very well structured, extremely organized, and provides comprehensive educational experiences as well as exceptional opportunities for research and leadership in one of the largest teaching hospitals in California. It offers very strong critical care, emergency medicine, and internal medicine rotations as well as an extensive and diverse selection of elective rotations. I was deeply impressed with the program preceptors, whose knowledge and years of experience in various clinical specialties offers an optimal foundation for advanced learning. Through these preceptors, I am confident that I will be offered outstanding mentorship, and a great opportunity to grow, improve, and excel.
