At a Glance

As an academic medical center, education and research are core responsibilities. Our organization is guided by the core principle of Meliora, meaning "ever better", and we are committed to innovation. We cultivate a positive, challenging learning environment that offers a multitude of learning opportunities at a quaternary medical center. As a resident at UR, you will develop skills to become a medication therapy expert and after completion of the program you will have the training and skills necessary to compete for a position of your choosing. Not only will you develop the clinical skills necessary to provide optimal care to patients, you will develop positive relationships with interdisciplinary teams, professional peers, and co-residents.
