Diane Hobbs, PharmD

PGY-1 Community Pharmacy Resident

Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? I chose Michigan Medicine due to the longitudinal nature and the vast array of learning experiences offered. As a resident here I am able to work on multiple projects, teach at the college of pharmacy, and have rotations in areas I would not be able to have at other institutions. I also love the tremendous amount of support I get here as a resident.

Advice for future residents: Explore unfamiliar areas of pharmacy an step outside of your comfort zone. There will always be things on your to-do list so take time to relax and recharge.
