Audra's Quote:

"LMH provided me the tools and experiences to do anything and go anywhere I want with my pharmacy career. This program is dedicated to developing leaders and providing world class patient-centered care. The LMH family is supportive and committed to on-going learning, resident involvement, and advancing the practice of pharmacy. The director is passionate for continuous program improvement and I appreciated the willingness to go above and beyond to tailor the year to my interests. The opportunity to travel to Kenya and make a positive impact on healthcare issues at an international level was rewarding and led to a lot of personal and professional growth. I am forever grateful for my experiences at LMH.

The residency program at LMH offers such incredible opportunities to grow personally and professionally. I chose LMH because I felt it could prepare me to work in any type of pharmacy setting, which holds true as I currently work in inpatient, outpatient, and ambulatory care environments. The preceptors have an astounding passion for learning and proudly represent our profession at the state, national, and international level in a positive and professional manner. I cannot thank everyone enough for the truly unique experience. LMH and the preceptors provided me with more learning opportunities than I could have ever imagined while being incredibly supportive and caring. I genuinely enjoy the hospital staff outside of the pharmacy as well. I am so thankful that I was given the opportunity to stay and continue to work with and learn from such wonderful people at LMH!

After completion of my first solo 7 days of 12-hour shifts post residency, I could look back and say it went well! I could NOT have handled 30+ vancomycin consults and order verification for a 220+ patients and 5 rural hospitals without my experiences at LMH! Thank you to everyone who helped during my residency!

"The residency program at LMH offers amazing learning and professional development experiences that were way beyond my expectations. Not only do you get a solid background in core knowledge areas, but you are able to experience direct patient care, can take on unique projects, develop a working knowledge in medication safety and technology, and take on multiple teaching opportunities. The flexibility allows you to shape your year how you want it, no matter how your interests change throughout the year. The preceptors and directors are phenomenal people and teachers and fully embody the idea that pharmacists should never stop learning! I feel so lucky to have been a resident at LMH."
