Pharmacy Residency - Current Residents

Hannah Pamer, PharmDHannah Pamer, PharmD


Hometown: Gloucester, MA

School of Pharmacy: Northeastern University

Professional Interests: Ambulatory care, transitions of care and academia

Post PGY1 Plans: Considering a PGY2 in ambulatory care.

What attracted you to HOCC? I really enjoy the small community hospital feel with a larger healthcare system that supports opportunities for more specialized care. Being in a smaller hospital, we as pharmacists have the opportunity to take an active role in patients’ care and really get to know other members of their healthcare team. Having specialized care, we can consult pharmacists who specialize in critical care, transplant, infectious disease, among others, and complete rotations in these areas. For example, HOCC has a unique rotation in Ambulatory Oncology at the Cancer Center that I will get to do later this year.

What do you like to do in your free time? I am a baking and cooking enthusiast. You can also find me exploring restaurants in the area (food is a common theme). I enjoy getting outside with my friends and family, whether it’s to hike, ski or lay on the beach. When I’m at home and not in the kitchen, I like to do crafting projects, like embroidery, or curl up with a good book.

Matt Thaller, PharmD


Hometown: South Windsor, CT

School of Pharmacy: St. John's University College of Pharmacy

Professional Interests: Infectious diseases, critical care, and academia

Post PGY1 Plans: Pursue a PGY2 (likely in ID, but I want to keep an open mind)

What attracted you to HOCC? The decentralized pharmacy structure and involvement of all the pharmacists on the clinical decision making process and collaborative practice agreements. Additionally, the many students (IPPE and APPE) that I would be able to work alongside in conjunction with the Teaching Certificate would help me grow as a future educator and develop my own teaching philosophy.

What do you like to do in your free time: Travel (rare nowadays with COVID) and spend time outdoors at the beach, on hikes, and playing throwbacks on long drives.

Research Project: Assessing the appropriateness of antibiotic prescriptions in emergency department outpatient settings for UTI, CAP, and SSTI.
