Rachel LeClair, PharmD

Rachel LeClair, PharmD, is originally from Warner Robins, Georgia, and received her doctor of pharmacy from the University of South Carolina in Columbia. She completed her PGY1 residency training at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. When she rotated at Prisma Health Richland Hospital as a student, she admired how well-integrated pharmacy was in clinical areas and chose to return as a PGY2 to continue working in that environment and to learn from the challenging but supportive preceptors. Her areas of interest include the medical population and infectious diseases, but she is excited to explore other areas throughout the year. In her free time, she enjoys binging TV, catching up with friends and traveling when possible.
