Mylan School of Pharmacy Welcomes 2013- 2014 Residents and Fellows
Duquesne University and the Mylan School of Pharmacy welcome seven new and two returning Residents and Fellows for this academic year. The Fellowship and Residency programs, established in 2007, are designed to enable a skillful transition from being a student pharmacist to a well-rounded, knowledgeable leader in pharmacy practice and education. The 2013-14 new residents and fellows include; Hailey Choi (Duquesne University), Jonathan Thingpen (Auburn University), Sarah Deutsch (University of Pittsburgh), Kasey Malotte (University of Maryland), M. Thomas Bateman (University of the Sciences- PCP), Sarian Bangura (University of Maryland Eastern Shore) and John Bailey (Xavier University). We welcome back, Gary Tedesco (Duquesne University) and Kristin Franks (Duquesne University) who will be starting the second year of their two-year Academic and Research Fellowship.
The School of Pharmacy faculty operates practice sites throughout the region in accordance with our Academic Partners program. These locations also serve as clinical sites for residents and fellows. The sites enable the residents or fellows to refine their clinical skills and gain preceptor experience as they advise fourth-year student pharmacists in their Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE) courses.
