Lifestyle in the Area
Lima is situated just over an hour drive from Dayton, Toledo, Columbus and Fort Wayne, Ind., so you are never too far from a major city.

What to Expect
The average day at the family medicine clinic starts out around 7 or 8 a.m. with working up patients that will be seen by medical residents or myself throughout the day. I review charts for medication-related problems, including therapeutic duplications, dose adjustments and inadequately treated medical conditions. As patients arrive for the day, I perform medication reconciliation for more complex patients, answer drug information questions and make recommendations to medical residents and other providers regarding medication changes. I also recommend and administer a variety of immunizations.
Typically, I precept either an APPE student or a PGY 1 resident in the clinic. Over lunch, I frequently have either a pharmacy meeting, student presentation or topic discussion for students. Around once a week, I work in the Anticoagulation Clinic, which provides variety in my weekly schedule. I also have the opportunity to attend the medical resident didactics on Wednesday mornings. Finally, Friday afternoons are left open for project time to work on research and presentations. My days usually wrap up between 4 or 5 p.m. Overall, there is variety in my daily schedule, with many opportunities for teaching and education, both of pharmacy students and medical residents.
