Why Atrium Health Cabarrus? As a fourth-year pharmacy student, I was searching for a residency program that would allow me to build a strong clinical foundation in a challenging, yet supportive environment. Atrium Health Cabarrus fit this vision perfectly. The program offered a diverse array of core and elective rotations, which would help me grow into the well-rounded clinical pharmacist that I aimed to be. Due to my interests in Internal Medicine and Critical Care, I was particularly drawn to the program’s two Internal Medicine core rotations and various Critical Care electives. The opportunity provided by the program to co-precept pharmacy students also satisfied my interest in gaining teaching experience throughout the year. Above all, I appreciated the program’s commitment to a strong preceptor- resident relationship. I believe that this will be essential for my personal and professional development throughout residency and beyond. I am thankful to be completing my PGY-1 residency at Atrium Health Cabarrus, and I am looking forward to my time here.

Why Atrium Health Cabarrus?
I was inspired to pursue clinical pharmacy through a PGY1 residency while I was on rotations, here at Atrium Health Cabarrus, as a second-year pharmacy student. The preceptors here truly care about patient outcomes and serving their community. Additionally, the diverse patient population and rotation experiences available at Atrium Health Cabarrus offered the vast exposure I was looking for in a PGY1 program, while also offering goal specific rotations in my areas of interest. From my time here, it has been clear to me that Atrium Health Cabarrus offers an environment of learning that furthers the development of pharmacy, and a supportive culture that facilitates personal growth during the residency year.
