Dear Dr. McLendon-Avrvik:
statement of interest
I am writing this letter to express my sincere interest in the Duke University Medical Center’s
American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited Postgraduate Year 1 (PGY1)
residency program. I have had the pleasure to speak to current and past residents, and I have been
very impressed with the opportunities that would be afforded me within your program.
Duke University Medical Center has everything that I am looking for in a PGY1 program. The
appealing components consist of multidisciplinary interactions, presentation and research
opportunities, a diverse patient population, and many networking opportunities. These
components are important aspects to perfecting the practical experience and didactic components,
as well as the leadership and research skills afforded via my on-the-job training at WakeMed
Health and Hospitals and UNC’s Doctorate of Pharmacy training. Additionally, the wide
selection of elective rotations will provide me an excellent resource for mentoring in what I hope
will be the next phase of my professional training, completion of a PGY2 program in transplant
or infectious diseases.
Additionally, I strongly feel the program’s training will facilitate both my short and long term
career aspirations. I want a wide variety of experiences in order to enhance my skills, and the
opportunity to interact with patients in order to become a proficient and well rounded clinical
pharmacist. For this reason, the longitudinal experience in ambulatory care is very appealing. My
short term goals are to obtain a pharmacy practice (PGY1) residency, followed by a PGY2
residency in one of my interest areas. My interests include infectious disease, transplant, and
cardiology. During my residency experience, I hope to enhance my clinical expertise in addition
to expanding my skills in research and administration. After completion of my residency training,
I plan to seek a position were I can teach, conduct research, and maintain a clinical practice.
Thank you for considering my candidacy for the pharmacy practice (PGY1) residency at Duke
University Medical Center. Please let me know if there is any additional information I can
2nd and 3rd paragraph: why the program
appeals to you and what skills/interests you
have to make a good candidate
