Nicholas Franz, PharmD

PGY-1 Health-System Pharmacy Resident


Hometown: Mundelein, IL

Pharmacy School: Creighton University

Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? Opportunities for critical care, emergency medicine and academic work; size of the hospital and program; wanted to explore a new city; my favorite interview!

Research Topic: Heparin continuous infusion dosing and anti-Xa monitoring in patients with cirrhosis

Writing Topic: Hypersensitivity reactions to intravenous lipid emulsions

Hobbies outside of pharmacy: Craft beer, sports, travel, sitcom re-runs

Favorite Book: The Alienist - Caleb Carr

Favorite Movie: Life is Beautiful (La Vida e bella)

Favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor (and why): Too many to choose a favorite - but Sava's passionfruit creme brulee is the best dish I've had so far

Favorite part about doing residency at Michigan Medicine: Size of the program - big enough that we have lots of different interest and experiences, people are always around and never a dull moment, but no one gets in each other's way of learning or experiencing
