Ryan Sutherlan, PharmD

PGY-1 Health-System Pharmacy Resident

Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? I wanted to join a top-tier program that will not only challenge me to be my best in the practice of pharmacy, but allow me a wealth of opportunities to enhance the quality of patient care for those that I would be fortunate to serve. Michigan Medicine keeps innovation at its core and as a result I am able to rapidly grow and evolve as I forward my practice in research, scholarship, and patient care.

Advice for future residents: Never be afraid to challenge yourself in practice, but also never forget to take time to do nothing and enjoy it.
