Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? Michigan Medicine offers the unique opportunity to learn from 3 Adult and 2 Pediatric Infectious Diseases pharmacy specialists and see different perspectives in how to approach the very gray world of ID. The robust Antimicrobial Stewardship Program and variety of initiatives that the pharmacists led were particularly impressive, and very much aligned with my interests.
Research Topic: Antimicrobial Stewardship Intervention to Provide Secondary Prophylaxis with Oral Vancomycin for Clostridium difficile Infections among High Risk Patients
Writing Topic: Evolution of Equations for Estimating Renal Function and its Impact on Dosing of New Antimicrobials
Hobbies outside of pharmacy: Traveling and visiting national parks, exploring new restaurants and breweries, Netflix
Favorite Book: IT by Stephen King
Favorite Movie: Finding Dory
Advice for future residents: Be passionate about what you're doing because your residency experience is exactly what you make it. You get out of residency what you put into it.
Favorite part about doing residency at Michigan Medicine: I love the work environment at Michigan Medicine with amazing preceptors and co-residents to share ideas and experiences with.
