Residents are required to attend a variety of meetings and conferences throughout their residency year, including but not limited to departmental meetings, select committee meetings, administrative and professional meetings.
The Pharmacy Department holds a monthly departmental meeting, which serves to keep all department employees informed of upcoming changes or improvements in the department.
Residents must attend at least two Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee meetings as well as committee meetings related to medication safety.
This biweekly meeting serves as an administrative longitudinal experience where residents will discuss management topics. This meeting also is an opportunity to broaden the residents’ knowledge of professional issues.
