Consistent with the ASHP residency standards, each resident is required to complete a pharmacy practice component of the residency program. Although typically referred to as staffing, this component of the residency program will provide residents the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of pharmacy practice. Residents are exposed to the dispensing, the compounding and order verification component of pharmacy practice. This experience is crucial in developing a well-rounded practitioner.
Residents will complete computer system training during the one month orientation period. The staffing component of the residency program is completed during the resident’s assigned weekends. Residents will staff every other weekend. Evaluations of residents’ performance are completed three times throughout the residency year. Residents are expected to complete an evaluation of the staffing component and offer any suggestions for improvement to the residency director.
Residents are expected to assist in staffing holidays. Residents are allowed two paid holidays, one hospital-recognized summer holiday and one hospital-recognized winter holiday. Recognized holidays that fall on a resident’s assigned weekend are not to be selected as paid holidays.
