Testimonials from Past Residents


Jared Hill, “I graduated from the Wegmans School of Pharmacy at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York.  Pursuing a PGY-1 pharmacy residency at Asante was an opportunity to advance my clinical knowledge and skill set in a hospital setting nationally recognized for high-quality healthcare.  Dr. Debbie Sanchez, the pharmacy residency director, is very open to customizing the residency experience to suit the interests of each resident, with opportunities available in inpatient, outpatient, and management areas.  The pharmacy team and preceptors are receptive and work hard to ensure the development of residents.   In addition, the program provides numerous valuable leadership and speaking experience opportunities.   My time as an Asante resident is exemplified by Asante’s vision statement of being ‘a great place to work.’”


Mandi Cordes, “I graduated from the St. Petersburg Campus of the University of Florida, College of Pharmacy. I decided to pursue a residency to become more comfortable with in-depth clinical knowledge and gain confidence in my abilities. Asante offered rotations in many of the areas I have the most interest in, such as critical care, oncology, and general medicine. Our residency schedule is flexible and the program can be easily tailored to what the residents hope to achieve. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Asante so far. All of the preceptors are very willing to help residents grow and become independent clinicians. Asante is a great company to work for, and the staff here is extremely friendly and helpful.”


Katie Moline, “I graduated from the University of Montana, Skaggs School of Pharmacy in Missoula, Montana.  I wanted to pursue a PGY-1 residency to improve my confidence and clinical knowledge. Asante offered rotations in the areas I was most interested in critical care, emergency medicine, infectious disease and NICU/pediatrics.  Another component that was important to me in a residency was having the opportunity to teach students and complete a teaching certificate.  Furthermore, the staff is friendly and always willing to help.  The program and the residency director are flexible to help you achieve the goals you set out to achieve.”


Shaleen Singh, “I graduated from Pacific University, School of Pharmacy in Hillsboro, Oregon.  I decided to seek a PGY-1 residency at Asante in hopes to strengthen my clinical knowledge in disease state management and gain more confidence in my abilities as a new practitioner.  Asante offered a broad range of rotations that I was eager to gain experience in, especially in critical care and infectious disease.  Additionally, Asante has a great network of knowledgeable and supportive preceptors, and the program allows for the professional and personal development of their residents.  The Residency Director is very open with her communication with the residents and helps tailor the program to each resident’s interests as they progress during the course of their residency.  Overall, I am proud to be a part of Asante’s pharmacy team.
