JOHNSON CITY — East Tennessee State University’s Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy welcomes several new residents and a fellow who will be furthering their postgraduate pharmacy training in various practice settings over the next few years. Wade Tugman, of Mountain City, has been accepted into the Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency for second-year postgraduates. He earned his bachelor’s in Allied Health Sciences from Milligan College in 2013 and his PharmD from ETSU in 2017. He completed his PGY1 pharmacy residency at the Veterans Affairs Tennessee Valley Healthcare System in Nashville.
“I wanted to return to Gatton as a pharmacy resident because of how progressive ambulatory care pharmacy practice is in this area and also because I wanted to come back to East Tennessee and serve the community in which I grew up,” said Tugman, who plans to work as an ambulatory care pharmacist serving patients in the Appalachian region.
