From rounding with inpatient teams to preparing a new transplant patient for discharge, I was constantly in awe of the ways that a community pharmacist could help provide care and build partnerships with patients and providers. To this day, the skills I learned during my year in Boston continue to provide the foundation for my current role as a specialty pharmacy manager.
This community residency program helped me improve both my clinical and personal skills through a variety of experiences. Although last year was difficult for many, this program taught me how to adapt to change and to adjust to a variety of situations. I was able to not only hone in on my clinical skills through countless patient and health care professional interactions, I was also able to grow my leadership skills by taking on certain managerial roles. Without this residency, I would not have the confidence or versatility that I have today in my current position as a district pharmacist.
The critical care fellowship at Northeastern University provides the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) pharmacist with the skills to be able to answer pharmacotherapy-related questions posed in clinical practice through the design, implementation and evaluation of methodologically-sound studies.
This fellowship is not currently open to applications.
