The Pharmacy PGY1 Residency is a 12-month program with an emphasis in acute care and experiences in ambulatory care, practice management, drug policy and formulary management, hospital practice and academic development. Required rotations include transitions of care, internal medicine, advanced internal medicine, critical care, emergency medicine, practice management, ambulatory care diabetes clinic, clinical services (consultation service and antimicrobial stewardship), hospital formulary and policy management, medication safety/management, and hospital practice. Elective rotations are available in infectious disease, geriatrics, cardiology, nephrology, trauma service, anticoagulation clinic, family medicine, and oncology (flexibility exists to create additional electives or repeat a required one month rotation). In addition to the design and conduct of a major research project, the resident will participate in the education of pharmacy students, resident physicians and other healthcare professionals. Residents will also participate in a longitudinal teaching certificate program (offered by the Northeast Ohio Medical University College of Pharmacy) that will provide them with an opportunity to improve their didactic, small group and experiential teaching skills.
A comprehensive benefits package includes health care and prescription coverage, dental and vision coverage, life insurance, and optional participation in a 403b program. Additional benefits include: 6 paid holidays, 15 vacation/sick/personal days, a minimum of 10 days for professional travel, professional travel reimbursement, free parking and use of a free employee fitness center. Other resources available to the resident include: medical library at hospital; research department; and resident office space, desk and computer. Residents participating in the teaching certificate program will be given a faculty appointment of Clinical Instructor at the Northeast Ohio Medical University College of Pharmacy and will have access to the University’s intranet (DOCS), course management system (AIMS), and extensive library resources.
