Impact of time to follow-up on readmission rates in patients discharged from an acute care cardiology inpatient service


I chose to complete my residency training at UNC because of the advanced clinical opportunities, teaching, research, and overall balance of this program. I was also very impressed with the “family” mentality that was apparent during my interactions with residents, preceptors, and administrators alike. The strong support system, encouragement to develop leadership and teaching skills, and focus on service to high-risk populations was exactly what I was looking for in my ideal residency program. As an ambulatory care resident, I have the opportunity to gain experience in diverse ambulatory care settings, but achieve key inpatient competencies throughout the year as well. At UNC, pharmacists are embedded into almost every practice setting, are dedicated to the advancement of our profession, and are experts in their fields. I am extremely fortunate to call myself a UNC resident, as I know this year will yield tremendous personal and professional growth.
