Why Carolinas Medical Center? When looking at ID residency programs, I was drawn to those with a strong research program, a variety of rotations that would provide exposure to unique populations, and ample opportunities to precept students. The PGY2 program offered through Atrium Health clearly encompassed each of these. After having the opportunity to work with some of the ID preceptors during my PGY1 residency here, I realized the program has so much more to offer than what is in the description. The pharmacy team is inclusive and dedicated to the growth of their residents and the profession of pharmacy. Additionally, the support shown from ID providers is prominent, creating an environment of collaboration and continuous learning. An added bonus is being able to live in Charlotte with so much to offer in the area!
