Why UW/UnityPoint Health Meriter? The multisite program with UnityPoint Health Meriter provides diverse experiences that includes exposure to a wide variety of infection types and unique patient populations that can differ between institutions. I am also able to experience and actively participate in the antimicrobial stewardship programs at both an academic medical center and a community hospital, which is a unique experience for PGY2 ID programs. I feel that the broad exposure will help prepare me to be a well-rounded ID pharmacist that can thrive in a variety of clinical settings.

Why UW? I was drawn to UW Health early in my pharmacy school career due to my interest in research. I was fortunate to have wonderful research experiences with both UW Health pharmacists, and residents. After personally seeing the growth of the residents I worked with, I knew this program was special. UW Health pushes pharmacy residents to work at the top of their license, creating confidence and independence through a strong decentralized staffing model. There is a strong support system of preceptors who are always there when you have questions or need help. I knew the UW Health pharmacy residency program would mold me into the best possible clinical pharmacist I could be.
