Resident Biographies - Lauren Buchbinder
My name is Lauren Buchbinder, and I am from Atlanta, Georgia. I graduated from the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy and received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Georgia Institute of Technology. Currently, I am pursuing a PGY1 pharmacy residency at Bayhealth Medical Center in Dover, DE.
Prior to pharmacy school, I worked in the pharmacy at Stamps Health Services, Georgia Tech’s on-campus health center. This is where I fell in love with the field and realized the only career for me was in pharmacy. Also, before pharmacy school and during pharmacy school, I worked at CVS/pharmacy where I gained more knowledge and skills related to the profession. It was during my APPE experiences that I realized I wanted to continue to work in the hospital setting after graduation. Currently, my clinical interests are in internal medicine, ambulatory care, and ensuring continuity of care for the patient.
In my free time, I enjoy running/training for half marathon races, baking (preferably something with chocolate), attempting to become a coffee connoisseur, reading, watching the Atlanta Braves, and spending time with family and friends.
I am honored to be completing my PGY1 residency at Bayhealth. After this year, I hope to either pursue a specialty residency or continue my career as a patient care clinical pharmacist.
