Core Rotations

Antimicrobial Stewardship

The Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) rotation focuses on providing education to providers on the appropriate utilization of antibiotics. Time is divided between global treatment plan assessment, individualized learning and discussion of ID topics, and working on specific infectious disease initiatives.

Critical Care I

During the Critical Care I rotation, residents attend daily multidisciplinary rounds with the ICU teaching service. Along with the preceptor, residents will be responsible for all aspects of medication therapy management for up to 24 medical and surgical ICU patients. The resident’s knowledge of critical care pharmacotherapy, and serving as a drug information resource are
emphasized.

Emergency Medicine I

During the Emergency Medicine I rotation, residents learn pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of conditions commonly seen in an emergency department. Residents participate in the roles and responsibilities of an emergency medicine clinical pharmacist, including optimization of medication use while interacting with the interdisciplinary team, order review, medication procurement and preparation. Residents are active participants in Code Blue and Code Fast emergencies, as well as participants in high risk procedures such as rapid sequence intubation.

Family Medicine Clinic / Skilled Nursing Facility (Ambulatory Care)

During the Ambulatory Care rotation, residents gain pharmacotherapy experience in long-term patient care on our Skilled Care Unit that combines inpatient rehabilitation and 24- hour skilled nursing care. Residents provide a comprehensive review of all patients’ conditions and medications. Residents also attend interdisciplinary meetings where the care team reviews the patients’ care needs. Residents also spend two days in the Family Medicine Clinic where they will participate in Coumadin Clinic and manage patients currently taking Warfarin.

Internal Medicine I

During the Internal Medicine rotation, residents round on the hospital units with the Hospital Medicine Group in both multidisciplinary and bedside rounds to provide comprehensive pharmaceutical care. This includes prospective patient chart reviews, optimize patient medication therapy, coordinate pharmaceutical services when needed, provide nursing and/or staff education and counsel patients on new medication upon discharge.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) / Labor, Deliver, Postpartum and Recovery (LDPR)

During the NICU and LDRP rotation, residents complete medication orders, compound, and dispense medications accurately and safely for NICU & LDRP patients. Residents also round with the NICU team in multi-disciplinary rounds to provide medication recommendations and to answer drug-related questions.
