PGY-1 Residents will have ample teaching experiences both at the school and as part of their clinical rotations at the hospital. As part of their teaching portfolio, residents will have opportunities in both small group and large classroom teaching, and will support faculty longitudinally at the school as clinical instructors in the following courses: Pharmacy Practice Labs (I, II, and III), Case Studies (I, II, III, IV, and V), Pharmaceutics lab and Capstone.
During the second half of their residency year, residents will serve as co-preceptors for fourth-year Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) students on their rotations and will facilitate student-led journal clubs and pharmacotherapy topic discussions.
During their five-week academic block, which will take place during the second half of the residency year, each resident will work under the guidance of their respective teaching advisor and develop a formal lecture (1-2 hours) on an educational topic of the residents’ interest in either an elective or didactic course.
The teaching and learning curriculum will include monthly seminars on topics such as effective presentation skills, use of technology in the classroom, writing effective exam questions and objectives, etc.
Upon successful completion of the requirements of the teaching and learning curriculum, each resident will be awarded a teaching certificate at the end of the residency year.
