Jonathan, who is from McMurray, PA, graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy this past April. During his residency, he hopes to improve his ability to care for patients in a community setting and learn how to better implement and improve clinical services. He is also looking forward to his teaching responsibilities within the School of Pharmacy, as well as learning how to be a more effective teacher and preceptor. Upon completion of his PGY1 residency training, Jonathan plans to continue to provide clinical services and act as a student preceptor by pursuing a career as a community-based clinical pharmacist.

Throughout her PGY1 Residency, she plans to build upon her clinical skills in the community setting, focusing on immunizations and heart health. Other goals of hers include improving her teaching skills and building inter-professional relationships. Corinn has recently early-committed to a PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency for next year with Duquesne University.
