I chose to pursue my PGY2 hematology/oncology residency at UNC because of the many doors that this institution opens for residents. UNC’s emphasis on education provides a nurturing, collaborative environment to learn from experienced pharmacists, while also challenging us to grow and maximize our professional experiences. The preceptors take pride in training residents and providing support towards their personal and professional aspirations. Most importantly, the supportive work culture at UNC allows us to enjoy the challenges that a residency brings. As soon as I found out that I would be training at UNC, everyone was so welcoming without even knowing who I was. There is a true sense of community within the program (even before stepping foot at the hospital) and it is motivating to work with people who care about you and want to see your success as much as their own. I am fortunate to be a part of the UNC family to help me reach my full potential as a pharmacist and allow me to be a leader in the field of oncology.
