    • Evaluation of the impact of anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) on post-hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) outcomes in patients undergoing allogeneic HSCT
    Why UNC?
    • I initially became interested in the UNC PGY1 Residency Program when several clinical faculty members at UCSF mentioned it as a potential landing spot for me based on my career interests. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to connect with several UNC faculty members at both the AACP and ACCP National Meetings, which helped reinforce my initial interest. After learning more about the program, I felt very confident that the UNC PGY1 Residency Program was uniquely fit for me. In particular, there were two aspects of the UNC's program that stood out to me; the teaching opportunities and the flipped research project. Not only does UNC offer an extensive amount of opportunities for teaching, but the program has a comprehensive structure to help support residents in developing their teaching skills. Additionally, the opportunity to complete a research project as well as design a project from the start was one I was eager to undertake. I feel incredibly fortunate to be part of the UNC family and enjoy collaborating with my fellow residents each and every day.

    Mary Roth, PharmD

    PGY1  Pharmacy Practice Resident

    Education:
    • PharmD – University of Wisconsin - Madison School of Pharmacy
    • Undergrad – University of Wisconsin - Madison
    Research:
    • Evaluation of the impact of anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) on post-hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) outcomes in patients undergoing allogeneic HSCT
    Why UNC?
    • UNC offers an amazing breadth of rotational experiences within an institution supported by an incredibly strong and progressive department of pharmacy. I wanted to train at a hospital that was creating changes in pharmacy practice rather than responding to them, and UNC provided this environment. Equally as important in my decision to come to UNC were the values of mentorship, commitment to teaching and learning, and support and encouragement that are fundamental to the residency program. Throughout my residency search process, I never found another program that provided the same extent of opportunities to learn and grow both in my clinical skills as well as my personal development as a leader and educator.
