When researching and evaluating the various opportunities at potential PGY2 pharmacy residency training programs, the University of North Carolina checked all of the boxes. From the diverse selection of clinical rotational experiences available to the excellent group of dedicated preceptors, it was clear that UNC is committed to training, developing, and fostering an environment of professional growth for the residents. I believe UNC provides residents with the necessary tools, resources, and guidance needed to become well-rounded and successful practitioners in the future. The pharmacy department at UNC continues to be a leader in the field and emphasizes the value of conducting meaningful clinical research that impacts pharmacy practice, developing and implementing best practices to ensure the safe and optimal use of medications, and continually forges new paths for the future of clinical pharmacy practice.
Specifically, as an oncology pharmacy resident here at UNC, I knew I would have the opportunity to work alongside excellent clinical oncology pharmacists in a variety of subspecialized, ambulatory care clinics and inpatient services. The shear breadth and depth of learning experiences offered at UNC assured me that I would be able to create a personalized residency experience that aligned with my overall career goals and aspirations of becoming a clinical oncology pharmacy specialist. In addition, the partnership with the UNC School of Pharmacy is unique and provides residents with ample opportunities to teach learners of all levels in both the traditional didactic and in a variety of clinical practice settings. The utilization of the layered learning and flipped research models are some of the unique and innovative practices that I believe enhance the residents overall learning experience throughout the training program. Overall, I believe UNC is one of the premier leaders in pharmacy practice and is truly dedicated to training future practitioners, leaders, and teachers in all fields of pharmacy practice!
