Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine is a required, one-month learning experience designed to prepare the resident to care for patients presenting with a variety of conditions such as diabetes, gastrointestinal-related disorders, respiratory-related disorders, renal insufficiency and neurological disorders.

The pharmacy resident is responsible for evaluating medication appropriateness, monitoring patients for drug therapy outcomes, managing drug therapy protocols, participating in multidisciplinary discharge rounds, and providing drug information to the physicians, nurses, patients, and caregivers. In addition, the resident will prepare educational in-services or other presentations for the pharmacy and/or nursing staff.
