Our Team


Our people make our program stand out. Over twenty talented clinical pharmacy specialists make up our core team of oncology preceptors who work with you throughout your residency year. Our preceptors have a wide variety of practice experience and a diverse set of skills with many being nationally recognized.

Our program has preceptors who are leaders; presenting on oncology pharmacy locally, nationally and world-wide. The diversity among our clinical group offers the advantage of having several different mentorship perspectives.

True to our preceptors is a genuine care and commitment to you and your professional growth and development. Mentorship and development is a priority here at UNC. In fact, mentorship is a formalized aspect of our residency program department-wide.

Additionally, a residency program of our size offers the opportunity to nurture many friendships amongst peers with whom you will share your residency experience. Upon completing our program, you enter the next phase of your career with a wide network of others that will be both colleagues and friends.
