    From our Assistant Director:

    Thank you for your interest in the UNC Medical Center Pharmacy Residency Programs! Over 50+ years, our programs have remained committed to the training of highly capable practitioners, educators, and leaders in pharmacy. In a year such as this one, we rely heavily on our experience to ensure that, amidst unprecedented challenges and opportunities, we continue to train competent and compassionate pharmacists.

    There are a few aspects of our programs I would like to highlight as things I think set them apart:

    1. Focus on Education: Education and training is a core part of our mission at the UNC Medical Center Department of Pharmacy. Whether didactic, experiential, or mentorship in nature, teaching is part of what motivates every one of our 100+ pharmacy preceptors. Our partnership with the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, the #1 ranked school of pharmacy in the nation, allows our residents to participate in the delivery of a rigorous and challenging PharmD curriculum, teaching in unique an innovative styles of delivery and learning from world-class faculty.
    2. Track Record of practice advancement: Clinical practitioners at UNC are consistently pushing the profession to new levels of excellence. Our clinical and research programs have been nationally recognized year after year as leaders in practice transformation that promotes positive outcomes for practitioners, learners, and patients.
    3. A commitment to our team members: We firmly believe that the best way to allow residents and clinicians to achieve is to support them in the pursuit of both professional and personal goals. We aim to create a culture that supports well-being, and one that ensures that we are doing our part to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for all. Through professional development opportunities, intentional bonding and mentoring, and aligned execution, we make it a priority to take care of our “pharmacy Tar Heel family”.

    We are so proud of the 500+ residents who have passed through the halls of the UNC Medical Center in their professional journey. Our alumni are a wonderful representation of all that we have to offer. I encourage you to explore this site and our programs, and please let us know if we can answer any questions you may have. Thank you again for your interest in our programs!
