Other major assets of the program are the personalized education, which caters to an individual's career interests, and the enthusiastic preceptors who are constantly willing to take the extra time to teach or work on a project, while constantly encouraging you to expand your practice as a pharmacist. Finally, I love the UW spirit, where pharmacists touch every patient in the hospital and resident projects lead change hospital-wide.
