Marina Capitanov, PharmD

PGY-2 Psychiatry Pharmacy Resident


Hometown: Twinsburg, Ohio

Pharmacy School: Ohio Northern University

PGY-1 Program: Cleveland Clinic Main Campus

Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? What really drew me to Michigan Medicine were the comprehensive opportunities offered, with the wide range of inpatient and outpatient psychiatric pharmacy services, involvement with teaching of the medical residents and at the college of pharmacy, and precepting. From my first interaction with the program, I knew that I would be valued and supported, but ultimately challenged to develop as an independent and effective psychiatric clinical pharmacist.

Research Topic: Clinical Conundrums of Clozapine on Consult Liaison Psychiatry

Writing Topic: What's Old is New: Repurposing of Old Medications

Hobbies outside of pharmacy: Hiking, spending time with my dog, traveling, working out

Favorite Book: Harry Potter series, Big Little Lies

Favorite Movie: Lion King

Favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor: Frita Batidos, Sweetwaters 

Advice for future residents: Set expectations early, give and ask for actionable feedback, be open and upfront with your preceptors about other assignments that you have, take the time to get to know your co-residents.
