Thoughts on choosing out-of-state residency programs

This week we are re-joined by Madeline Belk, a recent graduate of her PGY2 in infectious diseases at Huntsville Hospital. Choosing whether or not to apply for out-of-state residency programs and making the choice to go out of state for your residency or other post-graduate experience is a difficult decision. We discuss the pros and cons for choosing an out of state pharmacy residency with three people who all completed out of state programs.

Key topics discussed:

  1. Personal branding
  2. Networking
  3. Family
  4. Finances
