Danielle Smidt, Pharm.D.
PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice Resident
Hello my name is Danielle Smidt and I am originally from Denver, Colorado. My path to a career in pharmacy was not direct, but fortunately it brought me to UC Davis Medical Center’s program. I graduated with B.S. degrees in Biological Sciences and Microbiology from Colorado State University. I then received certification in medical technology by the American Society of Clinical Pathology. After gaining work experience in the clinical microbiology laboratory I transitioned to a career in pharmacy. In 2013, I earned my Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Currently, my primary interest is in infectious diseases and I plan to complete a PGY-2 specialty residency in this area. Outside of work, I love to travel to new destinations with my husband, flower garden and spend time with family, friends and pets.
