What makes our program unique?
Our program provides a close-knit, supportive training environment while also being connected to a large healthcare system.
Residents network and collaborate with their peers within the four Hartford HealthCare residency programs when participating in the UConn Teaching & Learning certificate program and professional development series.
Being part of a residency program with two residents offers more individual attention, mentoring, and flexibility.
Each resident selects a mentor who advocates for their success, facilitates communication among preceptors, and promotes well-being.
Residents have many opportunities to gain experience precepting pharmacy students and teaching lectures at local schools of pharmacy.
We have an excellent team of enthusiastic and experienced preceptors with specialists in multiple areas of the hospital who deliver robust learning experiences.
Residents complete a research project with the support of a dedicated mentor and a statistician to help them successfully design and conduct a high-quality study.
