Pharmacy Near Me Podcast E1

On this podcast, I’m trying to learn from the best in the world of pharmacy – how they stay up to date, stay healthy, stay engaged. More importantly, I’m trying to have a conversation about the non-pharmacy stuff, although since we’re all drug-nerdy eventually the core content will bubble up.

In this very first episode of the Pharmacy Near Me Podcast, I had a great conversation with Ruben Santiago, PharmD, BCPS.

Dr. Ruben Santiago is a pharmacy specialist in Emergency Medicine at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, FL. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biology and Microbiology from the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL, and completed his Doctor of Pharmacy degree at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He completed his post-graduate year (PGY) 1 training at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, followed by a PGY 2 in Emergency Medicine at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. After residency, Dr. Santiago worked at Boston Medical Center in Boston, MA as the evening emergency medicine pharmacist and then transitioned into the pharmacy specialist role at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, FL. Since 2015, he has been a part of the Jackson Memorial Hospital Clinical Pharmacy team. His interests include trauma, toxicology, and infectious diseases.
