PGY1: Evaluation of an inpatient pharmacist transitions of care model on patient readmissions

PGY2:   Impact of pharmacist participation in the patient care team on value-based health insurance metrics in a primary care clinic


UNC provides a strong PGY1 program for those seeking a career in ambulatory care pharmacy that is structured around the concept of developing quality patient care throughout all phases of care as opposed to solely outpatient clinics.

This year I will practice primary care, internal medicine, and critical care pharmacy in a robust learning environment that is complimented by supportive preceptorship that will enable me to achieve my professional goals as a pharmacist. Besides these reasons, I chose to do my residency at UNC upon discovering their particular emphasis on mentorship as mentors have always been a significant part of my clinical and professional development.

All of this in addition to a progressive environment for pharmacy, invaluable leadership opportunities, and an unparalleled research experience has me very excited to practice pharmacy at the University of North Carolina Medical Center.
