This position is a one-year long, structured post-graduate education and training program. The residency position provides advanced knowledge and skills regarding drug therapy and pharmacy services in a hospital setting. The pharmacy resident is a pharmacist in training who provides comprehensive pharmaceutical care through integrated drug distribution, clinical services and teaching.
The major job responsibilities of this position include clinical interventions, leadership, drug distribution and providing educational services. The following activities are components of the position to assist in meeting the major job responsibilities:
The resident provides pharmaceutical care to neonatal, pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric populations.
Cabell Huntington Hospital is a regional referral center offering a multitude of services including: level II trauma center, level III neonatal center, oncology center, burn unit, pediatric, surgical, and medical intensive care units. Cabell is affiliated with Marshall University Schools of Medicine and Pharmacy.
The resident is required to complete twelve (12) months of practice experience rotations during their residency for successful completion. Rotations are determined by program requirements, resident’s interests and personal and professional goals for completing their residency program.
Residents are expected to function independently and demonstrate proficiency throughout the rotation as documented on evaluations. Preceptors are responsible for ensuring rotation and program goals. Objectives are met through specific activities to be completed during the rotation, such as providing mentorship and teaching the principles of pharmacy practice through incorporation of the four teaching models (instructing, modeling, coaching, and facilitating). The preceptor is responsible for providing the resident with the rotation syllabus, establishing a schedule and providing ongoing feedback and timely evaluations. In the event a rotation does not have a pharmacy preceptor, the primary preceptor will be designated by the RPD with the secondary preceptor being a pharmacy preceptor representative.
The resident is responsible for communicating any scheduling conflicts, absences or issues concerning the rotation to the rotation preceptor and residency program director in a timely manner. The resident is expected to contact the rotation preceptor prior to starting the rotation to establish the expectations and goals for the rotation.
Core/required: Core rotations are five-week-long rotations that will provide the resident with essential skills that will meet the required goals and objectives of the residency program. Core rotations will also provide the resident the ability to gain experience in diverse patient populations, a variety of disease states and a range of complexity of patient problems. The core rotations will also provide the resident with the skills needed to perform as an independent learning on an elective rotation.
Elective: Elective rotations are either 2.5 or 5-week-long rotations that are offered to a resident to promote additional experience in an area of interest that will meet the residents personal goals and objectives. Certain core rotations must be completed prior to assignment of an elective rotation. Non-pharmacy preceptor rotations are not to be assigned prior to January, unless discussed with the RPD. No more than one-third of the 12 month residency program may deal with a specific patient population or practice area.
Longitudinal: Longitudinal rotations are completed independently with minimal direct oversight from a preceptor. Expectations and requirements of a longitudinal rotation are completed throughout the year with evaluations of progress made on a quarterly basis.
Required Rotations (5 weeks each)
Longitudinal Learning Experiences
Because of the flexible nature of the residency, other rotations may be available depending on resources and interest. Residents attend the annual ASHP Midyear Meeting and the Great Lakes Pharmacy Resident Conference.
