The Trauma elective is designed to expose residents to the management of patients in the Trauma Medical Intensive Care Unit. Residents will round with a multi-discliplinary team to manage the pharmaceutical care needs of patients who have experienced physical trauma. We offer additional rotational experience in the trauma step-down unit as well.
Teaching and Learning
Teaching and Learning is designed to develop the resident’s ability to determine an audience’s educational needs, capture audience attention, and transmit information through the use of various media (written, verbal, and electronic). The goal of this rotation is to provide the resident with an experience of teaching within a pharmacy practice department at a pharmacy school and to expose them to a faculty member’s responsibilities, including didactic and experiential teaching, service to the school and profession at large, and clinical practice site management.
Surgical Care is designed to allow the resident to learn to manage acute and/or critical care needs of the post operative patients. The resident will round with the Surgical Trauma and Acute Resuscitative Services (STARS) team consisting of a surgical intensivist, physician assistants (PA) as well as clinical pharmacist. Other disciplines on rounds may include, but is not limited to, PA students, respiratory therapist, case management, social worker, charge nurse, and the primary nurse caring for the patient.
Neurology is designed to expose residents to the pharmaceutical care needs of patients with acute and/or chronic neurologic disorders. The resident will participate in daily rounds with the neurology team in the Neuro-Telemetry Unit.
Residents will work alongside unit-based pharmacists to facilitate provision of medications to patients in the Emergency Department. Services provided include acute patient care pharmaceutical services, medication histories, order evaluation and patient counseling.
