Young Yoon Ham
: PGY1 Resident

Education: 
Pharm D, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon
BA, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut

Hometown: Westbrook, Connecticut

Favorite part about Legacy’s residency program: I was very impressed by how well organized and challenging the interview was, and further impressed that while I was challenged, I never felt like I was just jumping through hoops. I felt comfortable immediately and leaving the interview I knew I’d found something special

Professional interests: Infectious diseases, antibiotic stewardship, geriatrics


Personal interests: 
Family, reading, podcasts and (aspirationally) hiking.

Interesting fact: A squirrel once gave birth on my dorm room bed and I found the nest upon returning from Spring Break in the middle of the night.  I was able to keep it safe and warm using a sock and some warm water and followed instructions from a squirrel rescue group (surprisingly numerous) to reunite baby and mama.  Though I was saddened to find that baby was gone when I returned with some oral syringes and Pedialyte, I probably wasn’t ready to be a single mom to a squirrel at that point in my life.

Natalie Tucker: PGY1 Resident

Education: 
Pharm D, Washington State University, Spokane, WA

Favorite part about Legacy’s residency program: The culture at Legacy is different than any place I have ever worked. The people immediately become family. Your coworkers and preceptors see you not only as a resident, but as a colleague and friend. People genuinely care and support one another, and this is one of the many reasons why I love being a part of Legacy Health.

Professional interests: Solid-organ transplant, critical care

Bo Weber: PGY1 Resident

Education: 
Pharm D, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon
BS, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon

Hometown: Beaverton, Oregon

Favorite part about Legacy’s residency program: During the interview, when I mentioned to Michelle that I was  nervous, she replied, “This is as much of an interview for us as it is for you.” I was amazed by how everyone was so  welcoming and genuinely interested in who I was beyond my CV and professional background. I knew from that moment that this was truly an environment where I could grow not only as a pharmacist, but as an individual.

Professional interests: Ambulatory care, oncology and general medicine

Personal interests: Cooking/baking, going to the beach, spending time with family and friends

Interesting fact: I enjoy the fall season in Oregon, namely because when leaves fall and crisp up, I can walk along them and hear them crunch as I walk.
