“When I was a resident, I had several opportunities to interact with other healthcare providers ranging from trainees to prominent attendings. Learning how to market pharmacist services in the ambulatory setting from the preceptors set me up for success after residency and I’m ever grateful!”   “My PGY-2 experience allowed me to gain a wealth of knowledge in multiple disease states and provided me with unwavering support from my preceptors and colleagues. They truly wanted to see me excel!”   “Although Mississippi was not my home before residency, Josh (Fleming) and the rest of the PGY-2 preceptors very quickly made it seem that way. Their kindness and encouragement helped me to improve both as a pharmacist and as a mentor to future pharmacists. My time at UMMC and UMSOP will not be forgotten – and neither will my positive patient care and community outreach experiences!”
