In pharmacy school, Stephen was involved in Student Senate, PRIDE in Healthcare, Multicultural Affairs in Pharmacy, and worked with Dr. Beth Martin and Dr. Natalie Schmitz doing survey research on cannabinoid use in pharmacy practice. He plans on becoming BCPS certified and looks forward to narrowing his area of interest for his career. Stephen enjoys hiking; camping; growing plants; spending time with friends and family; coffee; video games; and exploring new places to eat.
“I chose to complete my PGY1 pharmacy residency at Mercy Medical Center for a few reasons,” Stephen said. “The first was the pharmacy team and knowing that we have the ability to tailor our residency experience. When I had the opportunity to meet the preceptors and management, I felt that I was able to connect with their genuine care for the residents. They are here to support and teach us each step of the way. I also think the program offers experiences in many areas of hospital pharmacy practice, which not only creates a well-rounded healthcare professional, but allows for residents to find their area of experience.”
Carolyn is originally from Cedar Rapids. and received her Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Business Administration degrees from Drake University in May 2021. She has been involved in American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, Lambda Kappa Sigma, Drake Women’s Club Soccer and Habitat for Humanity. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, including her dog, Daisy; biking; playing soccer; and trying out new restaurants.
“I chose to complete my PGY1 at Mercy due to the wide variety of experiences offered, particularly being able to tailor my experiences to my personal goals, both with inpatient and ambulatory experiences," Carolyn said. “Another reason I chose this residency was 'The Mercy Touch'. From the first interview through the last, I felt that it was much less an interview, but more a conversation about how I will be able to reach my goals in this residency. Each member of the pharmacy that day made me feel like a colleague and showed how much they truly cared about my future both professionally and personally.”
