Post Graduate Year One Community-Based Practice

Curriculum for Pharmacists

Orientation and Concentrated Learning
The orientation will take place the first 2 to 4 weeks of the residency. Because we have other residencies, it will be scheduled to begin with company orientation and with the Family Medicine residents to begin a collaborative partnership immediately. The company’s benefits and policies will be discussed along with training with all the software packages that are used. During the orientation, the residents will discuss the residency purpose and practice environment; accreditation standards, goals, and objectives; required and elective learning experiences. There will be a one to two-week orientation of pharmacy procedures, structure, and expectations. The RPD will also spend time with each resident outlining project subjects.
