PGY1 Pharmacy Resident

VA Houston health care

Raymond Thai, 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: During my APPE rotation at VA Houston as a P4 student, I was able to witness a collaborative learning environment where the clinical pharmacist was a valuable member of the interdisciplinary team. Since I have started as a PGY-1 resident, it has been clear that the preceptors here truly invest in our learning and support us during our transition from student to practitioner.

VA Houston also offers a robust range of inpatient and outpatient rotations for residents who may have varied interests. It’s been an excellent year so far and I look forward to the rest of my learning opportunities!
