The Advanced Operations – Central Inpatient Pharmacy Rotation has been designed in conjunction with the University of North Carolina Medical Center (UNCMC) Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residency Program, and the ASHP Educational Outcomes, Goals, and Objectives for the PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residents.
