Atrium Health Cabarrus (formerly Carolinas HealthCare NorthEast) PGY-1 Residents
2019-2020 Residents

Lauren Campbell, PharmD

Undergraduate Institution: North Carolina State University
Pharmacy School: University of North Carolina Eshelman School of Pharmacy - Chapel Hill Campus
Why Atrium Health? Atrium Health offers many experiences that I was looking for in a PGY-1 program including creating leaders in the outpatient setting, elective opportunities in the inpatient setting, and the challenging yet supportive environment that offers a balance of both support and autonomy. These opportunities will allow me to advance my clinical knowledge and critical thinking skills to be able to practice at the top of my license and improve the quality of life of patients across the Charlotte area.

Emily Gwynn, PharmD

Undergraduate Institution: Wingate University
Pharmacy School: Wingate University School of Pharmacy
Why Atrium Health? I feel honored and humbled to be completing a PGY1 residency in ambulatory care with Atrium Health. When considering residency programs, I knew I wanted one in which preceptors and staff would foster growth and confidence in my clinical knowledge and patient care abilities. From my first interaction with Atrium Health, I have experienced a welcoming, supportive learning environment. Atrium Health is an ideal place to learn, as preceptors model excellent interdisciplinary relationships and teamwork to provide compassionate patient care. It is obvious that pharmacists are valued as an integral part of the health care team at Atrium. A final deciding factor for me was the prospective and impactful resident projects, which have the potential to continue as full-fledged services after completion.

Post-Residency Interests: After completing PGY1 residency, I plan to seek CPP, BCACP, and CDE certifications and pursue either PGY2 residency or employment in the ambulatory care setting. My ultimate goal is to find employment where I am able to use the skills I’ve gained to help manage chronic disease states in rural/underserved populations.
