Treatment of Mycobacterium abscessus in patients with cystic fibrosis


There was no question in my mind that I would receive high quality training and exposure to a wide variety of medical conditions and pediatric sub-specialties at North Carolina Children's Hospital. The opportunities to teach and get involved at UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy are endless and provide experiences to prepare me for a career as a teacher and preceptor. However, what really made UNC stand out to me was the emphasis that is placed on camaraderie and mentorship within the residency class. I knew I would learn a lot and work hard while also making time for fun as part of the UNC family!
