Catherine Vu, PharmD

PGY1 Pharmacy Resident

VA Houston health care

Catherine Vu, PharmD, is a PGY1 pharmacy resident at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center.

Hometown: Houston, TX

Education: University of Houston College of Pharmacy (Houston, TX)

Research/QI: Semaglutide plus metformin vs. metformin alone for antipsychotic-induced weight gain in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus 

Why VA Houston: The Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center is part of the largest medical city in the world, which plays a vital role in providing exceptional patient care and facilitating the growth of many medical learners. After having firsthand rotational experiences of the VA pharmacist’s role in mental health for primary care, it was an easy choice for me to make.

The opportunity for pharmacists to practice at the top of their license and to serve the veteran population make the VA a unique place to foster my development to becoming a clinical pharmacist.
