Department of Pharmacy: The mission of the department of pharmacy is to work collaboratively with other healthcare professionals to optimize evidence-based medication regimens to deliver quality patient care, ensure safe medication practices, and advance pharmaceutical knowledge through educational and teaching activities.



Post graduate year one pharmacy residency programs build on doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for post graduate year two pharmacy residency training.


The pharmacy practice residency has been designed to provide the resident with the tools to become a confident, professional and competent member of the medical team. Core objectives of the residency will encourage the resident to:

  • Design and optimize drug treatment regimens for patients in multiple settings through the use of evidence-based medicine.
  • Strengthen communication skills through daily interaction with the medical team and formal and informal presentations to staff.
  • Participate in pharmacy practice experiences to broaden an understanding of the medication-use system.
  • Develop research and project management skills through the completion of various medication-use evaluations and participation on hospital committees.


The pharmacy practice rotation schedule has been designed to develop the independent practitioner. Skills developed during the initial rotations will be integrated into practice as the resident becomes a valuable member of the hospitalist or critical care team during their core internal medicine and critical care rotations. Longitudinal rotations in pharmacokinetics and pharmacy practice will further serve to develop a well-rounded practitioner. Further opportunities for lecturing, networking with other area pharmacy residents and precepting doctor of pharmacy candidates will also be available.
