PGY-1 residents will have ample teaching and learning experiences both in academia at the PCOM School of Pharmacy and as part of their clinical rotations at WellStar North Fulton Hospital.
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.
As part of their teaching portfolio, residents will have opportunities in both small group and large classroom teaching environments, 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 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.
Residents will also 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 discussion.
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.
