The resident will provide formal and informal consultations to the medical staff, complete written drug evaluations, and develop and complete a major clinical research project. Additionally, the resident will be actively involved in precepting pharmacy students on advanced clinical rotations. Overall, the residency is designed to provide advanced training necessary for individuals seeking clinical pharmacy specialist or clinical non-tenure/tenure track faculty positions.
