Mayer Goldberg, Pharm.D.: Newly-Minted Pharmacy Grad Lands Coveted Spot in Prestigious First-Year Residency Program
Director of Communications
New York, N.Y. - Born in New York, raised in Brooklyn and currently a resident of Flushing, Queens, Mayer Goldberg, Pharm.D. received his doctorate in pharmacy on May 25th from Touro College of Pharmacy. This summer he will become a pharmacy resident at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, a well-established and prestigious pharmacy residency program.
Dr. Goldberg decided to pursue pharmacy after taking a variety of science courses that ignited his interested while pursuing his B.S. in biology at Lander College of Arts & Sciences – Flatbush. “I really enjoyed being challenged by the complexity of the organic chemistries,” he said.
After a professor encouraged him to consider pharmacy, he began shadowing a clinical pharmacist at Lutheran Medical Center and realized pharmacy was the right career path for him. This choice was confirmed, he noted, when he met another student at Touro College of Pharmacy, Sigal, class of 2017, who would later become his wife. Long-term, Dr. Goldberg said he hopes to split his time between clinical and academic pharmacy.
