Residency Match 2022
Students from the class of 2022 are celebrating the next step in their professional
journey. Here they share what has inspired them along the way and what advice they
would give to new students.
Where did you match?
WellStar Atlanta Medical Center, Atlanta, Georgia
Why did you pursue a residency?
I decided to pursue a residency to gain more knowledge and experience at an accelerated
pace while having the opportunity for interprofessional collaboration. I believe a
residency will instill personal and professional growth and broaden my clinical decision-making
abilities. Completing a post-graduate residency will allow me to practice at the top
of my license so that I am able to provide the best care for my patients.
How did you feel when you found out you matched?
I felt ecstatic and relieved! (Might have even shed a few tears!)
What advice would you give to year one pharmacy students just starting their journey?
I would advise them to take advantage of every opportunity that is given to them and
to put their best effort into everything they do!
Is there anything else you would like to share?
I would like to give glory to God and thank all my family, friends, professors and
preceptors for being my biggest support system throughout this process.
