Impact of Inpatient Initiation of SGLT2 Inhibitors for Heart Failure with Reduced Ejection Fraction on Diuresis


I was initially drawn to UNC for their progressive pharmacy practice model, strong mentorship, and tradition of excellence in clinical pharmacy. However, it was the passionate preceptors and genuine sense of inclusivity that led me to choose UNC. The PGY1 program offers a wide variety of rotation experiences to ensure that pharmacy residents receive the comprehensive training and skills necessary to provide care for patients with a vast array of complicated disease states. The robust support and opportunities for resident autonomy provided by the preceptors at UNC allow PGY1 residents to reinforce their critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills. The program encourages comprehensive professional development through integrated interdisciplinary collaboration, scholarship, longitudinal leadership, research, as well as opportunities to teach and precept students from the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. Most importantly, I value the emphasis that UNC places on the personal growth and well-being of their residents.
