Value of the UChicago Program

The UChicago Medicine residency program provides pharmacy residents the opportunity to gain independence early-on with the clinical on-call program. I believe that this experience helps stimulate growth beyond the regular staffing and rotation experiences as you are the primary clinical pharmacist to answer the drug information questions and respond to medical emergencies.
