What other activities are Island Health Pharmacy Residents involved in?
Residents participate in an Academic Half Day Program. Residents are provided with clinical teaching through regularly scheduled, disease-based “Therapeutic Discussions” throughout the residency year. Sessions are facilitated “in-house” by the seasoned experts of the Island Health clinical pharmacy team.
Residents are assigned a research project to complete during their residency year. Insofar as possible, project assignment takes into account the unique interests of the individual resident. Residents are assigned dedicated project time during the residency year but are expected to tend to their projects on an ongoing basis, as required.
During the year, residents are provided with a variety of opportunities to deliver formal presentations and/or facilitate discussions with pharmacists as well as other disciplines, typically during the direct patient care rotations. This experience prepares residents for their case presentation at one of the regularly scheduled BC-Wide Case Presentation sessions.
Residents meet regularly with the Program Coordinator to ensure that their learning objectives are being met and that they are on track for successful completion of the residency year.
