Current Residents

Pari Iverson, PharmD (Washington State University)

piverson1@billingsclinic.org

Pari grew up on a Black Angus cattle ranch in the tiny community of Winnett, MT (located 3 hours north of Billings), which has a population of about 150. The Dovetail Creek Ranch has been in the Iverson family for almost 110 years! Pari completed her undergraduate prerequisites at Montana Tech in Butte and pharmacy school in Spokane, Washington at Washington State University (WSU). She was highly involved in leadership, including serving as the president of the Professional Pharmacy Student Organization and WSU student ambassador. Additionally, she was active within the Phi Delta Chi professional pharmacy fraternity, Phi Lambda Sigma leadership society, and the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP).

Pari graduated from pharmacy school this past May and started her PGY1 Pharmacy Residency in June. She is incredibly excited to be back in her home state after living in Washington for four years! Pari’s primary pharmacy practice interests include infectious disease, cardiology, and critical care. She is eager to dive into these practice areas and further develop her skills as a newly graduated pharmacist.

 In her free time, Pari enjoys the outdoors like any good Montanan! She’s an avid skier, loves to hike and fish, and is hoping to get more into backpacking in the coming years. Sports have always been a passion of Pari’s, and her competitive edge comes out during pick-up basketball games! Pari also enjoys bullet journaling as an organizational method and creative outlet.


Natalie Morgan, BSN, PharmD (University of Montana)

nmorgan3@billingsclinic.org 

Natalie grew up in Bozeman, Montana. Her childhood was spent emulating everything her two older sisters did, showing market lambs at the Gallatin County 4-H fair, and playing the tenor sax in the Bozeman High School band. Natalie attended Montana State University for nursing, graduating with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) in 2011. Natalie worked for five years as a nurse, both in the inpatient (medical floor) and outpatient (wound care clinic) settings. Driven by a persistent interest in how and why medications work, Natalie made the challenging, yet rewarding, decision to go back to pharmacy school at the University of Montana in 2017.

Despite dealing with some internal Bobcat versus Grizzly angst, Natalie found productive ways to occupy her time during pharmacy school. This included joining the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) and National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) student groups, which provided the opportunity to be a planning member for the School of Pharmacy’s annual community health fair. Natalie also enjoyed working as a pharmacy intern at a small independent pharmacy in the Bitterroot Valley during pharmacy school, complete with an old-fashioned soda fountain.

Natalie is honored to be starting the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency program at Billings Clinic. Natalie’s main interest areas include ambulatory care, oncology, and infectious diseases. She especially enjoys interacting with and counseling patients. In her free time, Natalie can be found taking a walk at Norm’s Island, visiting her family/friends in Bozeman and Billings, getting coffee from Black Dog, and catching up on a Netflix™ show or two. Natalie is looking forward to learning from the incredible preceptors and entire pharmacy team at Billings Clinic during this residency year.


Emma Murter, PharmD, MPH (University of Montana)

Emma Murter

Emma grew up in Hardin, Montana before moving to Billings for high school sports.  After graduating high school, she attended Montana State University-Bozeman as a Presidential Scholar for Microbiology and Honors.  She postponed graduate school in favor of exploring options in healthcare; in the interim, Emma worked as a Medical Assistant for One Health, formerly the Bighorn Valley Health Center in Hardin.  It was during this time that the many clinical and non-clinical opportunities pharmacists have piqued her interest.

Emma started her pharmacy career by attending the University of Montana where she graduated in May 2020 with her Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Public Health degrees.  Throughout school, she was the pharmacy intern at Billings Clinic and worked closely with the Medication History and Main Inpatient Pharmacy teams.  Some of Emma’s extracurricular activities included President and Cancer Awareness Chair for the Delta Chapter of the Kappa Epsilon Professional Pharmacy Fraternity, Operation Immunization Chair for the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists, and Vice President of the Public Health Club.

During Emma’s free time, she can be found spending time with her two very fat cats, knitting, hanging out with her family, or working in a community pharmacy.  One of her favorite past times is listening to live-play Dungeons and Dragons and other role-playing tabletop game podcasts.  Her brother, Forrest, can also be spotted at Billings Clinic; he’s one of the clinical pharmacists. 

Emma began her PGY1 pharmacy residency at Billings Clinic in late June.  Her professional interests include pain management, informatics, and medication safety with a plan to pursue a postgraduate year two (PGY2) residency in pain and palliative care management.  She is thrilled to be back continuing her career at Billings Clinic and is looking forward to working with everyone!

What residents like about the Billings Clinic PGY1 Pharmacy Residency

Preceptors

"My favorite part of being a resident at Billings Clinic is the people I get to work with on a daily basis. Not only are the preceptors brilliant pharmacists and wonderful teachers and mentors, but the entire pharmacy department supports us as residents and monumentally contributes to nurturing our clinical knowledge and practice skills on a daily basis."

"The best thing about doing a PGY1 residency at Billings Clinic is the PRECEPTORS. You cannot ask for a better group of compassionate, knowledgeable, and passionate pharmacists to learn from."

"My preceptors and co-workers make this residency one of the best and I’m so grateful for the experience to learn from highly trained practitioners that consistently provide the best patient care."

Interdepartmental Collaboration

"Another aspect I love about being a resident at Billings Clinic is how well respected pharmacy is within the institution by all departments and providers."

"Almost all rotations involve a daily rounding component where pharmacists are a critical part of the healthcare team and help providers make important clinical decisions. Pharmacists are sought out on a daily basis to assist in drug-related questions and we make interventions daily."

Patient Care

"You can directly see the impact you make on the patients and their health."

Rotations

"I also love the flexibility within the residency. I have been able to explore many different interests, which has helped me discover where my true passions are and where I see myself headed in the future."
