Katrina Phelps, PharmD
Pharmacy School: University of South CarolinaMy name is Katrina Phelps and I am one of the 2021-2022 PGY1 residents at Bon Secours St. Francis Downtown in Greenville, South Carolina. I attended Charleston Southern University for two years of undergraduate study, then the University of South Carolina’s College of Pharmacy to obtain my PharmD. I am interested in critical care and emergency medicine. I plan to pursue PGY2 residency training in one of these areas and conduct further research to contribute to the profession by continuously improving upon the practice of pharmacy. As a new pharmacist I have already experienced many instances in which I have advocated for patients who are putting their faith in the health care system to provide exceptional care. We are the drug experts and the responsibility of identifying medication discrepancies and making recommendations falls on our shoulders to improve patient outcomes and ensure the delivery of evidence-based medicine. Outside of pharmacy, I enjoy Crossfit training, hiking, bike rides – pretty much anything active and outdoors. My dog, Killa, usually joins me on these adventures. I am looking forward to a great year of residency and the beginning of my journey as a clinical pharmacist.
Michael Shaw, PharmD
Pharmacy School: Presbyterian College
My name is Michael Shaw and I am one of the PGY1 pharmacy residents for the 2021-2022 residency year. I completed my pre-pharmacy coursework at the University of South Carolina and completed pharmacy school at Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy. Throughout the first few rotations of my residency, I have already had my hand in improving the quality of care delivered to patients of the hospital. Pharmacists are in a unique position to both act as a knowledge resource for members of the health care team and directly impact patient care through clinical interventions and recommendations. During the pharmacy school curriculum, I developed a passion for infectious diseases; this passion has further blossomed as I had an antimicrobial stewardship rotation as a fourth-year pharmacy student and my infectious diseases rotation as a resident. I plan to pursue a PGY2 residency in infectious diseases to continue learning what I am most passionate about. In my free time, I enjoy golfing and fishing, even though I am not particularly proficient at either. One thing that I am good at is being a dog dad to my miniature dachshund, Oakley.
