On June 23, Creighton University hosted the annual Nebraska Residency Banquet. The banquet included dinner, a guest speaker, and certificates presented to each resident.
All graduating residents in Nebraska were invited to attend the banquet, which honored them for their hard work and dedication to pharmacy post graduation. Residents came from Omaha, Lincoln and Grand Island.
“The Annual Nebraska Residency Banquet is held every year at the end of the academic year to recognize and celebrate pharmacy residents completing their PGYI and PGY2 residencies in Omaha at Creighton, the University of Nebraska Medical Center and affiliated institutions, such as the Veterans Administration and CHI, said Chris Bradberry, dean of Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions. “This event has been a great success over the years and represents outstanding collaborations from all of the institutions supporting our pharmacy residency programs. Kudos to Creighton and UNMC for their continued administrative support of this event,” Bradberry said.
Of the 26 residents honored at this event, six were pharmacy graduates from Creighton.
The honored Creighton University residents were PharmD 2015 graduates, Chris Johnson, Drew Klick, Michael McQuade, Linda Nong, Yunuo Wu and Stanislav Yavid.
