Kaitlyn Pinkos, PharmD
PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Resident

Biography

Kaitlyn Pinkos is currently a PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Resident at the University of Chicago Medicine. She graduated with her Doctor of Pharmacy from University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. At UMB, Kaitlyn worked at an independently owned community pharmacy, held leadership positions in various school groups, and was a part of multiple research teams in both cardiology and oncology. Kaitlyn was interested in pursuing a residency position at a large academic medical center where she would work with strong clinicians in a variety of practice areas and have diverse experiences that would allow her to grow and develop her own clinical knowledge. Her primary interest areas are cardiology, critical care and research. She is looking forward to building on her experience and education through the rigorous but supportive program at UCM.

 

PGY1 Research

Kaitlyn’s PGY1 Research project will look at the impact of moving from variable dosing to fixed dosing for 4-factor prothrombin complex concentrate. 

 

Value of the UChicago Program

The residency program at UChicago provides a wide array of clinical experiences with interdisciplinary teams, both inpatient and outpatient, in order to provide residents with a well-rounded learning experience. Residents are given the autonomy to apply their knowledge and develop as practitioners while also providing support and learning opportunities from knowledgeable preceptors.
