Current Pharmacy Residents

David Hawk PharmD – PGY1 Resident

College: University of Cincinnati James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy

Personal Statement:I slowly migrated from an hour north of Columbus, to Wilmington College for undergraduate school, and then slipped further south and found myself studying Pharmacy at The James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy at UC. My first exposure to hospital pharmacy came with my introductory pharmacy practice experience at Bethesda North. I had a great experience and decided to rank the rotations available here for a lot of my Advanced Pharmacy practice rotations, and the only logical conclusion was to apply to here for Residency after those, and it worked out swimmingly! I knew what supportive and caring preceptors I would have as well as just how much I would get out of the program and grow as a new clinician. Now that I’ve been here for a couple months, I’m just as pleased as I thought I would be and more, I’m excited to continue this journey and to grow to be as brilliant as those who have completed this program before me.

Asmaa Oudabachi PharmD – PGY1 Resident

College: University of Cincinnati James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy

Personal Statement: I’m from Cleveland but Cincinnati has become my new home ever since I started College at the University of Cincinnati. I knew a long time ago that I wanted to purse pharmacy as a career, and it has been deeply fulfilling this far. I competed my doctorate in pharmacy at the University of Cincinnati James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy where I was encouraged by professors and preceptors to pursue a residency. My first experience at Bethesda North Hospital was as a PY2 student. I remember feeling welcomed by the pharmacy staff and challenged by different learning opportunities. I also completed a rotation here as a fourth-year pharmacy student. I am now excited to be completing my PGY1 pharmacy residency at the same hospital that invoked my interest in clinical pharmacy and thankful for the support of my team members.

Mirna Guirguis, PharmD – PGY2 Cardiology Resident

College: MCPHS University

PGY1 Residency: Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center

Personal Statement: I am originally from Ontario, Canada. I graduated and earned my Doctor of Pharmacy degree from MCPHS University and completed PGY-1 residency in Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center. I chose to complete my PGY2 cardiology residency at Trihealth Bethesda North where I immediately felt at home. I knew it would be a well-rounded and challenging clinical experience. The providers value the pharmacist’s input on patient care. I also enjoy the opportunities in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. My professional interests include heart failure, acute coronary syndromes, and anticoagulation. I am looking forward to expanding my clinical knowledge in the cardiology field.
