Meet Our Resident: Adam Hood

  • PGY1: Rush University Medical Center
  • Pharmacy School: University of Illinois at Chicago
  • Residency Project: To be determined
  • Career Interests: Internal medicine, education, academic medicine, leadership
  • Hobbies: Reading, running, cooking, gardening (when I have a yard), hiking
  • Why UW? I have always enjoyed working with people and helping them solve their problems. Pharmacists at UW play a larger role in the admission and discharge process than any place I have seen before, which allows me the opportunity to talk to and help all my patients. As an institution, the pharmacy department is very progressive offering a large number of unique pharmacist services. The vast majority of pharmacists are board certified, which allows for excellent learning opportunities. I also wanted to train in another large academic medical center associated with a school of pharmacy and medicine to enhance my ability to help educate and train the health professionals of the future.
