Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? The opportunity to train in a world renowned institution was highly attractive. Michigan's residency program challenges its residents to take ownership for their development, and as pharmacists and leaders in a rapidly changing world of healthcare, I believe that to be the key to success. It was important to me to match with a program that I felt I would be a good fit. My interview interactions with the pharmacy personnel helped me to decide I could do well with Michigan Medicine. Michigan provides a means to achieve many of my career goals as well as opportunity and security for my family.
