Paul is originally from Lake Mills, IA. He went to Iowa State University as an undergraduate and recently graduated from the University of Iowa with his PharmD in May 2020. During pharmacy school, Paul was involved in APhA, Honor Council, and also served as a pharmacy intern at Mercy. He is most looking forward to the wide variety of rotations this program provides to narrow down areas of interest to pursue in the future. In his free time, Paul likes to go fly fishing, hunting and travel with his wife, Morgan.
“I chose to complete my PGY1 pharmacy residency at Mercy Medical Center for many reasons," Paul said. "The two that I think set this program apart from others is the quality of education and ability to tailor your experience to fit your professional goals. Our program is filled with committed preceptors and staff that provide a high level of education, while also supporting you every step of the way. This program also offers a wide variety of rotations for a well-rounded experience, as well as the opportunity to repeat rotations if you find a particular area of interest to help create a truly personalized residency year."
Lexi is originally from Cedar Rapids, IA and received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Iowa in May 2020. She has been involved in American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, Rho Chi Honor Society, Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy, and Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity. Dr. Thumann’s areas of interest include infectious disease, oncology, and both inpatient and ambulatory care settings. She intends to obtain BCPS certification and pursue a career in clinical pharmacy practice. In her spare time, she enjoys being outdoors, gardening, spending time with family and friends, spoiling her cat Kobi, and visiting different coffee shops and local restaurants.
“I choose Mercy because of the wide variety of experiences one can gain, particularly ambulatory and inpatient experiences," Lexi said. "Many programs focus on one or the other, but Mercy's PGY1 program allows you to explore both as a practitioner to gain more insight into your true passions. Another reason I chose Mercy was the personalized approach to learning and the ability to tailor your learning experiences at any time in the residency year. It is unrealistic to assume the interests you held as a student will be the same as when you are a practicing pharmacist, so I appreciate a program that recognizes this and allows you to tailor your experience as you develop into a well-rounded pharmacist. Lastly, I choose this program because I could feel 'The Mercy Touch' was real. The preceptors here at Mercy are phenomenal and have extensive training along with a wide variety of background and experiences. They care about you not only as a pharmacist, but as a person and want to help you develop into an outstanding individual. The support I've experienced here is unparalleled and I am thankful for my opportunity to complete my PGY1 residency at Mercy.”
