Madelyn (Yassen) Batey, Kara Brockhaus, Abby Scott, Kara Buck

Madelyn (Yassen) Batey

  • PharmD: University of Iowa
  • Clinical interests: Emergency medicine, internal medicine, critical care, and possibly infectious diseases
  • What attracted me to SJMH: St. Joe's obvious and overwhelming commitment to their residents was, and continues to be, what makes St. Joe’s my ideal residency program.  I find SJMH to be unique in that the residency program is designed to be most beneficial to the residents and their interests, rather than just the hospital.  The approachability of pharmacists/preceptors along with their passion and dedication for teaching truly creates an ideal residency environment, of which I am proud to be a part.
  • Hometown: Orland Park, IL
  • Outside of pharmacy I enjoy: Traveling (17 countries and counting!), Pinteresting and being crafty, summer and being outside, Chicago, baking…mostly desserts, a good bargain, and of course - Groupons.

Kara Brockhaus

  • Clinical interests: Infectious diseases and internal medicine

Abby Scott

  • What attracted me to SJMH: While in pharmacy school, I had the opportunity to shadow a resident in the MICU.  I really enjoyed being part of the teaching service, and appreciated how open the rest of the team was to pharmacy recommendations.  All of the pharmacy staff is also very approachable and committed to helping the residents learn as much as they can while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
