"I just wanted to thank you again for an amazing year. Thank you for believing in me and allowing me to be a resident at TBHC. As I have told you on numerous occasions, this was the best decision of my professional/academic life. I cannot put into words all that I have learned and gained from this wonderful program. I would recommend this program to all future potential residents. Today is bittersweet knowing that I will be moving on, but if it was not for TBHC, I would not have the knowledge or clinical skills to move onto my own practice. Again, THANK YOU so much for everything you have done for me and for a year/experience that I will cherish and remember for the rest of my life!"
Nicholas Niceforo, PharmD (2019), Ambulatory Care Pharmacist, Queens Hospital Center, Queens, NY
"From day one of the interview process, I knew TBHC was where I wanted to be. The connection I established with the faculty provided me with a sense of comfort knowing this program would not only challenge me, but allow me to grow as an individual. With its dynamic work environment and unique 24-hour on-call program, TBHC offers the tools and resources needed to succeed."

"I chose this program for the exciting opportunity to train in infectious diseases in Brooklyn, for the great experiences described to me in my interview by the previous PGY-2 Infectious Diseases resident, and the unique program features such as the HIV primary care clinics and the well-developed Antimicrobial Stewardship Program."
Emily Ray, PharmD (2015), Pharmacotherapy Specialist in Infectious Diseases, Henrico Doctors Hospital, Richmond, VA
"When I met the faculty at TBHC during my PGY-1 interview, I knew this was where I wanted to start my residency training. Nowhere else did I find preceptors who seemed so honestly interested in me as a person and invested in seeing my career move forward. Although it was a challenging year, I would do it again in a heartbeat. I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge in many areas of pharmacy practice, as well as the confidence to handle tough situations quickly and effectively. TBHC will always feel like home to me, and I can't imagine having gone anywhere else."
Rebecca Cope, PharmD, BCACP (2014), Assistant Professor, LIU-Pharmacy, Brooklyn, NY
"It was quite evident from my TBHC interview that this program was going to be very challenging and unique in respect to other programs. This program is a perfect mix of clinical and ambulatory rotations, outstanding preceptors, rigorous curriculum all while set in the heart of Brooklyn and setting of New York City. It was a wonderful experience that served as the foundation to excel currently today."
James Nunez, PharmD, BCPS (2014), Cardiovascular Clinical Pharmacist, Heart & Vascular Center, Yale-New Haven Hospital, New Haven, CT
"As a student looking for residencies, I was drawn to TBHC because of the challenging academic environment and the wide array of pharmacy services that I would be able to participate in. As a practitioner, I wanted to return to the TBHC family because I knew the environment would foster my continued professional growth and I was eager to take part in the tradition of training excellent pharmacy residents."
Amanda Giancarelli, PharmD, BCCCP, CNSC (2013), Pharmacotherapy Specialist, Critical Care, Orlando Health, Orlando, FL
“I knew from the moment I interviewed with preceptors from TBHC that I wanted to complete my first year of training here, especially because of the level of engagement and commitment that the preceptors had for our learning from day one. I was also lucky enough to find a true mentor who really helped to develop me and served as role model that I try to emulate to this day. My first year of residency was the most challenging year of my professional life, however with the support of my #3509 family and my co-residents, who I now consider extended family, I would repeat it all in a heartbeat!”
Régine Béliard, PharmD, BCACP, TTS (2012), Assistant Professor, Department of Clinical and Administrative Sciences, Notre Dame of Maryland University, School of Pharmacy, Baltimore, MD
"I came to TBHC because of the family environment. My preceptors not only cared about my progress as a professional, but also as a person. The program’s strong emphasis on independence allowed me to build my own practice style based on a solid foundation of clinical knowledge."
Arkadiy Makaron, PharmD, BCPS (2011), Clinical Staff Pharmacist, Upstate University Hospital, Syracuse, NY
"TBHC caught my attention with the 24-hour on-call program but I was sold at my PGY-1 PPS interview. The family environment is visible from first glance and present in all aspects of the program. I attribute my success and accomplishments to the confidence and skills that I built and gained as a TBHC resident. I am truly honored to once again be a part of the TBHC family."
Thy Le, PharmD, BCPS - AQ ID (2010), Pharmacotherapy Specialist, Infectious Diseases, The Brooklyn Hospital Center
"The growth I’ve seen in this program over the years is truly amazing. Looking back, I know it was ahead of its time. When I’m asked if my residency training was worth the investment, my answer is always without hesitation, ‘Yes, and I would do it again!’ The amount of knowledge and experience I gained was invaluable and I’m always proud to say my residency training was at The Brooklyn Hospital Center."
Leslie Williams, PharmD, BCPS, BCCCP (2007), Clinical Specialist Critical Care, Memorial Regional Hospital, Fort Lauderdale, FL
"I chose TBHC because in 2004 it was the most unique, innovative and demanding pharmacy residency program in the Northeast. Led by someone who believed that ‘the remedy was experience’ and was prepared to prove it. From what I can tell, this program is still pushing the boundaries."
