I was looking for a challenging yet supportive environment to help me develop as a new practitioner and psychiatric pharmacy clinical specialist. I chose UNC because of the multitude of unique psychiatry rotations, the passionate and supportive preceptors, and the numerous didactic and experiential teaching opportunities available. Pharmacy is deeply integrated and well-respected at UNC, allowing residents to practice at the top of their license.
However, what really sold me on UNC was the people. The program director and preceptors are incredibly knowledgeable and genuinely invested in setting you up for success, both personal and professional. Additionally, I was excited to have a psychiatry co-resident to share my experience with and a large residency class, which has proved to be an incredible network of supportive individuals!
