Inova Mount Vernon Hospital PGY-1 Pharmacy Residents

PGY-1 Residents

Manisha Gokhale, PharmD

Residency Year: 2019-2020

Hometown: Centreville, VA

Pharmacy School: Virginia Commonwealth University

Areas of Interest: Infectious disease

Why This Residency Program: I wanted to do my PGY-1 in a smaller community hospital where I would be able to develop a good relationship with physicians and nurses. Being only 3 months into my residency, I can already see the relationships forming, and I feel as if I am able to make more meaningful interventions that way. The choice of electives, ranging from OR pharmacy to inpatient rehab, offered at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital (IMVH) is also what made me choose the program. Lastly, I chose IMVH for the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of the pharmacy staff. I instantly felt like I could fit in.

Jenna Pham, PharmD

Why This Residency Program: Inova Mount Vernon Hospital provides a well-rounded PGY-1 residency due to its wide selection of rotations and tailored teaching and research opportunities. The preceptors’ enthusiasm for the residents’ success in addition to the close relationships between pharmacists and other healthcare professionals were major reasons why I wanted to complete a pharmacy residency here.
