REM Corporation and Fayette County Memorial Hospital (FCMH) have collaborated to offer a one-year postgraduate year 2 (PGY2) Pharmacy Residency with a focus in Transitions of Care Pharmacy Practice.
The goal of this program is to help bridge the gap between care provided at the hospital and the home setting or alternate site of care (e.g., nursing home). Rod Banks from Fayette Pharmacy and Jennifer Lynch from FCMH are excited to welcome Sweta Andrews to the community and as the first pharmacy resident to this program.
Sweta graduated from the University of Findlay, college of pharmacy in 2014. Her passion for pharmacy education and patient care led her to complete a postgraduate year 1 (PGY1) Residency at the University of Oklahoma and Osborn Drugs in Oklahoma. During her PGY1 residency, Sweta obtained her foundational teaching certification, initiated many new services and enhanced existing services to improve patient care. Sweta has a strong background in clinical community pharmacy and is a strong patient advocate.
“I am fortunate to be a part of this community and am excited for the new opportunities this program has to offer in collaboration between these organizations, “Sweta said of her new position.
Patients in this community may see Sweta at the FCMH, FCMH Medical and Surgical Associates and Fayette Pharmacy. Her focus is to improve patient care by developing a Transitions of Care (TOC) clinic. She will also be developing wellness services at Fayette Pharmacy in addition to growing a clinical pharmacy practice at FCMH. Sweta’s commitment to her continued growth stems from her passion to improve patient care and desire to pursue a clinical faculty position post residency. Sweta will be completing an Advanced Teaching Certificate Program at Cedarville University School of Pharmacy during her residency program.
