Maria Peluso, PharmD Research project: Impact of telephonic outreach versus in-person shared model visits on medication findings and discrepancies in a heart failure clinic
Why Novant: From the second I interviewed with Novant Health, I felt like the ambulatory pharmacy team made me feel right at home. As a PGY1, I always knew my future was in ambulatory care, but was unsure of the exact area in which I wanted to focus. I was very attracted to the multiple experiences offered at Novant, ranging from primary care, heart failure, and even oncology and rheumatology. I also was excited about the opportunity to gain experience in population health. To me, this was the perfect fit as I am able to adapt my schedule to my interests.
One thing you like to do in Winston-Salem: While in Winston-Salem, I’ve enjoyed trying new restaurants and hiking at the national state parks on the outskirts of town!

Marcus Radz, PharmD

Marcus Radz, PharmD Research project: Impact of a medication reconciliation completed by an embedded pharmacist within a primary care clinic on admission rates in patients with chronic disease states
Why Novant: Novant Health offers a wide array of rotational experiences with preceptors that have different backgrounds. This creates a unique learning opportunity and allows residents to be in many different clinics under experienced preceptors. Preceptors give you a lot of independence and are also readily available whenever you have questions. The ambulatory care team is a tightknit group and that was apparent through my interview with the program. My passion lies in family medicine, which is completed throughout the year at two clinics, but I chose Novant Health due to the many different settings their pharmacists are practicing in. Gaining exposure to different clinical settings like rheumatology, oncology, and neurology allows me to grow as an ambulatory care pharmacist and feel confident practicing in any setting upon completion of my PGY2. Being a PGY2, you are also assigned chief resident for half the year, which has been a great opportunity to work with the PGY1 residents and to lead ambulatory care meetings monthly. This was a unique opportunity that was not offered at many other programs. I was blown away by the growth that past residents had through the program and it left me confident that I would leave Novant Health practicing at the top of my license.
One thing you like to do in Winston-Salem: Go hiking or for a walk around the local parks and try new restaurants or breweries in the area!
