Why Novant: FMC stood out from the very beginning of my residency search. I was drawn to the ability to personalize my residency experience based on my specific interests, and the strong mentorship and support the program provides for the residents’ personal and professional development. The great multitude of rotations offered, as well as the opportunity to conduct research, teach, and precept students are also characteristics I value in a residency program. As part of a large, integrated healthcare system, there are many opportunities to work with and learn from pharmacists throughout different campuses. I look forward to working at Novant and continue growing into a well-rounded clinician.
