In addition, faculty advisors and mentors may find this handbook useful to encourage and direct their current students to further their pharmacy education.

He is an active member of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, which named him a fellow in 2009.

  • "...a useful resource and guide for individuals choosing to pursue residency training. Recent years have seen the competition for pharmacy residency positions increase. In light of this, it is even more important that individuals interested in securing a residency receive appropriate guidance and direction to best prepare them for the search, application, interview, and decision-making process. This book successfully meets these objectives.

    This is a comprehensive and practical guide to finding, securing, and succeeding in a pharmacy residency program. It is not only a valuable resource for individuals pursuing residency training, it is also helpful for faculty mentors who frequently advise and encourage students to further their education through residency training. This handbook is likely the most useful, concise, and practical of its kind."
