PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant Pharmacy Resident

Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? What stood out to me was the opportunity to care for transplant recipients across all phases of their care, from their index admission to outpatient clinic visits, and the high level of involvement pharmacists had in patient care. I could tell that there was a strong culture of learning and collaboration here, and I knew that it would be an excellent place to train.
