Why I Chose UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital: My passion for pediatrics first arose while completing my internship experiences in pharmacy school, and ever since I have known that I want to care for this unique population. The resilience, hope, and determination of pediatric patients and their providers is an inspiring setting to work in day in and day out, and I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I knew UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s was the right program for me as it has such a wide variety of services in which pharmacists can play a critical role in the care of patients and their families. Since starting residency, I have learned so much about caring for pediatric patients, working with an interdisciplinary team that values the input of pharmacists, and most importantly, myself. I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn and practice at Rainbow and for all of the wonderful preceptors, co-residents, and other healthcare professionals I have met here.
