2008 Graduate Dr. Jennifer Canady
Hear Dr. Canady describe her 2008 residency!
"I have very positive thoughts as I reflect upon my experience as the first SRAHEC/CFVHS pharmacy resident!
Due to the program’s affiliation with the family medicine residency program at SRAHEC, there is an opportunity to interact closely with the medical residents during inpatient and Ambulatory Care rotations. This residency program allows for the pharmacy resident to be involved in the continuity of care, as patients seen during the internal medicine rotation at CFVHS are seen in the SRAHEC Family Medicine Clinic for outpatient care.
This residency has a balance between inpatient and Ambulatory Care experiences. Learning in this type of environment provides the opportunity to manage patients who present with a wide variety of disease states, including chronic, acute, and critically ill conditions. More over, this residency was customized to my area of interest, allowing me to select many electives in Ambulatory Care.
The attending physicians and medical residents are receptive and appreciative to the input provided by the pharmacy team. They frequently rely on us to develop sound pharmacotherapeutic plans and perform essential patient education.
Although the year of residency was a hectic time, the experience and confidence I gained from this program is priceless. I have no regrets about choosing this residency program, and would highly recommend the program to other interested individuals. The SRAHEC/CFVHS PGY1 residency program is a well-rounded program that fostered my professional development. I wish the program and future residents the same continued success."
