Why UW? As soon as I knew specialty pharmacy was my career path of choice, I began to research PGY-2 programs that would combine my two passions; specialty and leadership. Every search led me back to one name-UW Health. The experiences and opportunities available in specialty pharmacy make it unlike any other program in the nation. UW Health’s overarching goal to be the best in whatever they do resonates and challenges me to be the best in all of my endeavors. I am excited to be a part of this organization and for the vast opportunities that lay ahead throughout my residency year.
