Value of the UChicago Program

The University of Chicago Medicine serves as a perfect example of how an academic medical center should be run in both medical and pharmacy practice.  There is a great collaborative relationship between pharmacists, medical residents, fellows, and attendings. Also, we have high mutual respect with each other to work well together and optimize care for our patients. There is also a lot of teaching opportunities and layered learning experience between preceptor, resident, and students to help develop preceptorship skills of the residents.
