Amy Tuten, PharmD (left), a resident at Ohio State University Medical Center, traveled to Cincinnati to participate in the Mid-West Pharmacy Residency Exchange Program which was hosted this past summer by the Health Alliance of Greater Cincinnati and held at University Hospital.
The exchange program was established as a network for hospital-based pharmacy residents to share best practices for those who are beginning their professional careers as hospital pharmacists. Hospital-based pharmacy residents embark on one to two years of training in a nationally accredited program, at less than half their income potential, to receive additional training from expert preceptors.
During this discussion, Nicole Schmidt, PharmD (middle), a 2009 graduate of the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy and University Hospital pharmacy resident, wears a party hat to designate her as the facilitator. The group, which included Morgan Jones, PharmD (right), from Ohio State University Medical Center, was brainstorming the design of a hypothetical pharmaceutical product that would result in outstanding patient care.
