Tori Stavish - Frenchtown, MT | University of Montana Skaggs School of Pharmacy, class of 2018
Why St. Charles?
“I first started looking at St. Charles because I wanted to work in a community hospital that had a broad variety of rotations that would give me a great foundation before beginning the rest of my career. After interviewing here, I saw how positive the environment was and immediately knew I wanted to be a part of it. Since beginning, I have met many role-model pharmacists and have been able to interact closely with preceptors one-on-one. The flexibility of the program has really given me the freedom to explore my interests and build my learning experiences accordingly. I feel that this program was a perfect fit for me and will prepare me to be an effective and knowledgeable clinical pharmacist.”
Residency Project: Retrospective comparison of a joint cocktail vs. liposomal bupivacaine in total knee arthroscopy
Future Plans: “I have been very impressed with St. Charles and I would love to continue working here after residency. I have also fallen in love with Bend since moving here and I would be excited to make it my more permanent home. I am looking forward to continuing to develop my clinical skills and exploring many areas of pharmacy.”

Kara Hamlik - Grants Pass, OR | Oregon State University/Oregon Health & Science University, class of 2018
Why St. Charles?
“I am very happy with my experience so far at St. Charles for several reasons. The great culture at this institution stands out and is highly valuable to me as an incoming resident who is motivated to learn and make a difference. I feel supported in this learning opportunity. Pharmacists are an integral part of the rounding teams here and have ability to make great differences. I also have like having the ability to select my residency project. I am excited because the project has potential to have lasting impact on patient care. St. Charles, being a community hospital, allows me the opportunity to learn and grow in the type of pharmacy environment I hope to practice in upon completion of a residency.”
Residency Project: Evaluation of pharmacist managed glycemic control of surgical patients in a community hospital
Future Plans: “I am interested in a variety of areas of pharmacy, which is a large reason why I pursued a residency. As a PGY1 resident, I hope to strengthen my clinical knowledge and critical thinking skills, allowing me to become a pharmacist with skills to provide the best care for patients and the best support for my colleagues. My goal after residency is to practice as a clinical pharmacist in a community hospital setting.”
