Current Pharmacy Residents

Alec Diehl, PharmD - PGY1 Resident

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

Personal Statement: After spending four years in the inpatient pharmacy at Bethesda North as a volunteer, technician, and intern, I knew that this was where I wanted to complete my first year of residency after completing pharmacy school. I remember being excited when the program was first being developed and planned on applying here when it was my time to look at programs. I already knew that I would have the support of many great pharmacists and would have plenty of opportunities to continue my learning after pharmacy school. My experience here so far has confirmed that Bethesda North was the right choice for me. I have increased both my clinical knowledge and practical experience which has made me a more confident pharmacist. I have also had the opportunity to work on projects related to my interests that I feel can have a real impact. I am looking forward to continuing to grow with the support of all of our wonderful preceptors.

Elizabeth Howell, PharmD - PGY1 Resident

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

Personal Statement: I grew up in Cincinnati and was excited to be able to further my pharmacy career through a PGY1 residency in a city that is home to me. I attended the University of Cincinnati College of Pharmacy, graduating with my doctorate in pharmacy. The dedicated health care professionals at Bethesda North made an impact on me during my rotation as a fourth-year pharmacy student. My experience as a student shadowing at the community hospital confirmed my interest in their residency program. I immediately felt welcome into the pharmacy family from the start of my residency. I continue to be motivated by the other pharmacists I work with and their dedication to provide the best patient care. Despite the residency being a rigorous learning experience, I feel supported and that I serve as a valuable part of the team.
