What makes UW Health’s Medication Systems and Ops Residency Program unique?
We are one of the few programs focusing on medication systems and operations in the country. We provide an opportunity for learners to be exposed to and to understand the many factors and overall complexity of regulatory and compliance. Our residents become experts in project management, operations, and leave being able to effectively lead change management within an operational setting.
What goals do you have for residents who complete your residency program?
Our goal is for residents to leave our program with the skillset needed to fit a position that aligns with their goals. We want our residents to be flexible and adaptable leaders ready to fit into any leadership or patient care team.
What is your best advice for prospective residency candidates?
You can always teach technical skills, but what sets candidates is their positive energy including their attitude, and flexibility. These are the attributes that will show you are willing to learn and lead to success.
