There are many reasons why I chose Texas Children’s Hospital for my PGY2 in Pediatrics. I wanted to train at a large academic institution in order to be prepared for any position in the future. The residency program at Texas Children’s offers training across a wide variety of inpatient settings that interest me, particularly the neonatal intensive care unit.
I also feel that a residency, or any job, is most rewarding when surrounded by great people who love what they do. This is exceptionally true about the pharmacy staff at Texas Children’s. During my interview process, everyone was so friendly and down to earth, I instantly felt comfortable. I could also tell how incredibly dedicated and knowledgeable the preceptors were and looked forward to the opportunity to learn from each of them. I am so excited for the upcoming year and feel very fortunate to be a resident at this well respected program.
