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."
