  • Why UW? The culture and pharmacy practice at UW Health is unparalleled. Pharmacists at UW are completely immersed into practice and are valued by all. Additionally, all preceptors I met during my interview were incredibly kind and supportive of anything I wanted to accomplish during my PGY2. Completing an internal medicine residency at UW allows me to practice at a large academic medical center with an acute patient population. Lastly, being part of the program during its second year allows me the unique opportunity to impact the structure for future residents.
