Monday, October 24, 2005
The Pharmacy Residency and Occupational Medicine Residency programs at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler recently welcomed several new residents into their respective programs.
The two new pharmacy residents are Amy Collins and Lisa Skariah. Both graduated earlier this year from the College of Pharmacy at The University of Texas at Austin with doctor of pharmacy degrees. Collins grew up in The Woodlands, Texas. She wants to be a clinical pharmacist in an inpatient or outpatient setting that also allows her to do research. Skariah is from Tyler and plans to practice in an institutional setting as a clinical pharmacist.
The new occupational medicine resident is Aman Dhillon, MD. He graduated from Guru Govind Singh Medical College in Punjab, India. He will spend two years at UTHSCT, one year to complete his master of science degree in environmental science and another to complete his one-year practicum.
The Occupational Medicine Residency Program accepted its first resident in 1996. The two-year program accepts up to three residents a year. A total of 16 residents have graduated from the program, including Dr. James Culp, MD, who graduated in July.
