Dr. Russo chose AdventHealth Celebration's PGY1 Ambulatory Care Focused Program because of the diverse clinic opportunities, inpatient experiences, and positive learning environment. She strongly believes that working in a variety of clinic settings will enhance her ambulatory care skills, develop her own practice style, and prepare her for a future career in any ambulatory care setting. This year she is looking forward to making friends, networking, learning, interacting with patients, and growing as an independent pharmacist. When she's not at the hospital, Dr. Russo enjoys going to farmer's markets, traveling, watching movies, and trying new restaurants. As a new Orlando resident, she hopes to see Disney World, Universal and wants to try as many restaurants as she thinks its the best way to get to know a place! Upon completion of residency, Dr. Russo would like to pursue a PGY2 or a full-time role as an ambulatory care pharmacist, obtain BCACP and CDE certifications, and become an active preceptor.
