St. Joseph Campus has a de-centralized practice model with pharmacists strategically placed in critical care areas (NICU, ED, ICU) as well as the outpatient oncology, infectious diseases, and the general medicine. . All pharmacists are ACLS certified and participate in medical emergencies. The site is an affiliated medical education teaching site for the Medical College of Wisconsin. The Pharmacy Department trains IPPE and APPE students from a variety of pharmacy schools, including the University of Wisconsin, Medical College of Wisconsin, Midwestern University, Concordia University Wisconsin, and Rosalind Franklin University. Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the area offers many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors and cultural events.
Residents of the St. Joseph Campus PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program become skilled clinicians who are self-directed practitioners, prepared to assume advanced practice in an acute care environment. The pharmacy residency program is designed to develop independent, insightful practitioners prepared to assume an advanced clinical practice position in a community hospital, pursue a PGY2 in a focused area of interest, or serve as adjunct faculty for a college of pharmacy. Required rotations include critical care, emergency medicine, internal medicine, infectious diseases/antimicrobial stewardship, neonatology/women’s health, and pharmacy administration. The program is individualized to meet the needs of each resident through research project selection, elective rotation offerings, and personalized scheduling. The resident will participate in both site specific and system-level committees and assist with evaluating and improving patterns of drug utilization. Elective opportunities are available for experience in cardiology, geriatrics, ambulatory care, orthopedic surgery, informatics, critical care II, emergency medicine II and oncology. Residents may also obtain a teaching certificate through Concordia University Wisconsin School of Pharmacy. A yearlong research project will be presented at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and the Wisconsin Pharmacy Residency Conference.
