After completion of her residency training, Carrington chose to stay a part of the Tandem Health family. She served as clinical pharmacist for the Family Medicine Sumter location for one and a half years. During this time, she also served as preceptor and advisor for the pharmacy residency program.

She also now serves as the Program Coordinator for the pharmacy residency program.
  • In 2021, Carrington started the first clinical pharmacy service at Tandem Health to assist patients and providers with Medicare Annual Wellness Visits.

Clinical pharmacists are now able to see patients independently for blood pressure follow ups, diabetes management and education, smoking cessation, warfarin management and monitoring, and much more. Part of Carrington's role as Director of Clinical Pharmacy is to continue expanding clinical pharmacy services, as well as maintaining the success of current programs.
