Emergency Residency Program Year Two
Emergency Residency Program Year Two Description:
The emergency medicine pharmacy practice residency is designed to provide 12 full, consecutive months (starting July 1st and ending June 30th of the following year) of training in emergency medicine practice with the primary goal of producing clinical pharmacy specialist in emergency medicine capable of providing pharmaceutical to a diverse population of emergency department patients.
The resident will have the opportunity to work with the medical staff to assure rational prescribing of medications, work with patients to enhance their knowledge of the medications they receive, and partner with nursing to improve the overall safety of medication use. The resident will gain experience in many areas of emergency pharmacy practice including cardiology, neurology, critical care, infectious disease, drug information, ENT, Dermatology, Endocrine, Gastrointestinal, Pulmonary, Pain, Life Support and Resuscitation, Trauma, Toxicology and administration. Opportunities also exist for writing and speaking, MUE activities, drug use control coordination, and precepting pharmacy students and PGY1 residents. Completion of a research project and poster is required.
Rotations Offered: The rotations at St. Anthony’s Hospital are focused on Emergency Medicine and developing the resident’s specialized skills in this practice area. We also offer rotations that cater to more specific interests.
The required rotations focus on problems frequency encountered in the emergency department practice setting.
Further customizing our program to our resident’s needs, we can vary the length of time the resident spends in each rotation.
