VSHP Membership Spotlight

Carrie Carter, PharmD, BCPS


What initially motivated you to join VSHP?

I first joined VSHP as a pharmacy student as a way to learn more about hospital pharmacy as a career and access resources such as the Residency Showcase and student programming at the Fall Meeting. Now as a practicing pharmacist I enjoy the continuing education opportunities available and ability to network with other health-system pharmacists across the state.


Where did you go to pharmacy school?

I graduated from VCU School of Pharmacy in 2019.


Where have you trained or worked?

I completed a PGY1 residency with Sentara Healthcare Hampton Roads and am currently an inpatient clinical pharmacist at Augusta Health in Fishersville, VA.


Describe your current area of practice and practice setting:

Augusta Health is a 255-bed independent community hospital primarily serving the Staunton-Augusta County-Waynesboro region. I mainly work with our progressive care/step-down unit, general medical unit, and central staffing.


What advice would you give to student pharmacists?

Take advantage of a variety of volunteer opportunities – the experiences you have during these events will provide exposure to a wide range of patient populations and practice settings and can also lead to lifelong professional connections.


Do you have any special interests or hobbies outside of work?

I enjoy going to the beach, reading, crafting, and spending time with my dachshund, Miley.


What is your favorite place to vacation?

Outer Banks, NC every summer with my family
