Jalen Evans, PharmD

PGY-1 Health-System Pharmacy Administration Resident


Hometown: Kalamazoo, MI

Pharmacy School: Florida A&M University

Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? I chose the residency program for the Health System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) program combined with an MBA from Ross. I knew I would receive great residency training at Michigan Medicine and Ross is one of the top business schools in the country. Being from Kalamazoo, I also wanted to match with a program that was close to home after living in Florida for 7 years.

Favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor: Black Pearl

Advice for future residents: After orientation, things get going pretty quickly. Try to make to do lists to stay on top of tasks. Use your PTO to take personal days to relax. Time flies so take some time to enjoy the city and yourself.
