Michael J. Gabriele, PharmD, is the pharmacist for The Valley Hospital’s PGY-1 Community Residency position. Dr. Gabriele graduated from Rutgers University in 2017 with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. With a passion for the developing field of Transitions of Care, selecting The Valley Hospital’s PGY-1 Community Residency was a natural choice. The program consists of working closely with the pharmacists in the hospital's new outpatient pharmacy to enhance the transitions of care that patients experience as they are treated and discharged. Since beginning his residency, Dr. Gabriele has helped launch the hospital’s “Meds to Beds” program, prepared presentations for the hospital’s Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, and has become certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support. After completing his residency, Dr. Gabriele's plan is to continue practicing as a Transitions of Care Pharmacist, assisting patients as they move throughout the healthcare system.
Mark Levy, PharmD, a PGY-1 Resident Pharmacist at Valley, graduated from the University of Buffalo after completing his bachelor's degree in nutritional sciences from the University of Connecticut. Dr. Levy gained interest in the field while working at Florida Hospital during his PhD program in molecular pharmacology. His areas of interest include critical care, infectious diseases and informatics/management. He chose The Valley Hospital for its balanced structure of clinical, administrative and staffing responsibilities that the residency offers for professional and personal growth. Dr. Levy has been involved with creating a new rotation in nutritional support, attending codes, rounding with the medical teams in various specialty areas, and participating in a teaching certificate program. Upon completion of the residency program, Dr. Levy plans to obtain a clinical pharmacotherapy specialist position.
Brianne Traub, PharmD, earned her doctor of pharmacy degree from Philadelphia College of Pharmacy. Dr. Traub is a PGY-1 Resident Pharmacist at Valley, where she is excited to expand the roles of pharmacists and improve patient care. Dr. Traub chose The Valley Hospital because of its diverse learning experiences and its involvement with students from local pharmacy schools. After residency, Dr. Traub sees herself as a clinical pharmacist working in either the ambulatory care setting or the emergency department.
