The purpose of this program is to prepare pharmacy students for post-graduate year one (PGY1) residency training in an acute care setting. Students will have the opportunity to gain valuable experience during various inpatient clinical rotations. Specific program goals include fostering clinical skills and knowledge; improving written and verbal communication skills; developing problem-solving, research and leadership skills; and demonstrating professionalism as an integral member of the healthcare team. Students will learn how to implement evidence-based drug therapy plans customized to the needs of the individual patient under the supervision of the clinical pharmacy specialist and/or PGY1 pharmacy resident.
The program consists of three rotation blocks. Students will complete two required rotations and one elective, or student choice, rotation. Please note, the rotations may not be scheduled consecutively. At least one of the clinically focused rotations will be scheduled before December in order to account for ASHP Midyear and residency application considerations.
