The primary goal of this program is to develop residents into independent practitioners and confident pharmacy leaders who possess in-depth therapeutic knowledge and integrated professional attributes. Designed to provide broad exposure to a variety of patient care scenarios in the acute care setting as well as advanced sub-specialty practice, our program emphasizes development of skills in patient centered care, clinical and didactic teaching, research methodology, and clinical leadership. Great importance is placed on the individual goals and expectations of the resident and program experiences and assessments are continually refined to keep pace with the resident’s growth throughout the year.
The PGY1 program combines acute care medicine, intensive care practice, ambulatory care, and subspecialty disease management. While on clinical service, the resident’s responsibilities include interdisciplinary rounds, development of care plans, and optimization of medication therapy services. An interactive teaching environment allows residents to facilitate small group discussions, precept pharmacy student experiences, and present ACPE-accredited seminars. The teaching certificate program allows residents to learn innovative teaching methodologies and mentoring techniques from faculty. Residents complete a clinical research project, and present and publish their results.
