"Since my interview at Abington, I felt the environment fostered learning and growth of residents into great pharmacists in many areas of pharmacy. During my PGY-1 at Abington, I was challenged by preceptors to develop my critical thinking skills and therefore gain unforgettable experiences. The program has allowed me to form bonds with preceptors and co-residents. Early in my PGY-1 year, I knew I wanted to continue my training as a PGY-2 resident at Abington. The multiple ICUs available for rotations, including medical, cardiac, trauma, and neurosurgery, allow me the opportunity to be a well-rounded clinician."

"I selected Abington Hospital for my PGY1 because it was the only interview I attended where I genuinely laughed, and felt connected with the preceptors and immediately knew I wanted to build my pharmacy career here. Due to my strong interest in Infectious Diseases and the many opportunities offered, I early committed to the PGY-2 program. The relationships I have built over the past year and a half with my preceptors, pharmacy staff, and other medical personnel throughout the hospital has been invaluable to me. Abington is incredibly special because you are immediately welcomed into the family, and the contribution by pharmacy is appreciated and sought after by providers throughout the institution."
