St. Francis is a 209 bed community hospital located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. St. Francis has a de-centralized practice model with pharmacists located in several specialty areas including: ICU, medicine/surgery, and cardiology as well as outpatient oncology and neurology clinics. All pharmacists are ACLS certified and participate in medical emergencies. The pharmacy department trains IPPE and APPE students from several pharmacy schools including the University of Wisconsin, Concordia University – Wisconsin, Medical College of Wisconsin, Midwestern University and Purdue.
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. Residents completing the program will expand their knowledge and skill in providing optimal pharmaceutical care in various patient-care settings and develop critical thinking and time management skills that will allow them to become self-directed leaders within both their practice setting and the pharmacy profession. Rotations include: Pharmacy Practice, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Critical Care, Central Pharmacy, Administration/Drug Policy and ambulatory care (neurology and oncology clinics). Elective opportunities include: Academia, Critical Care II, Emergency Medicine, Oncology, Neonatology, and Orthopedic Surgery. Residents completing the Academia elective will have the opportunity to 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.
