Our residency programs provide education and training with a primary emphasis on the development of practice skills in a number of specialized pharmacy practice areas. Throughout the year, the residents are involved in a variety of service, education, and research activities. During this training, the resident will learn to conduct patient care activities using a consistent approach that reflects the philosophy of pharmaceutical care.
In addition to clinical activities, the resident will be involved in educational programs, which includes pharmacy case conferences, journal clubs, and a seminar presentation. Other teaching opportunities include medical and nursing in-services, as well as co-precepting students that rotate through Pharmacy. Research skills are developed through experience and enhanced by instruction during the year; residents will complete a research project and drug use evaluation. Residents will also attend the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and the Great Lakes Residency Conference, in addition to having the opportunity to attend and participate in other state and local conferences.
