The Lutheran Hospital Psychiatry Residency (PGY-2) is a one-year postgraduate training program that is targeted towards residents who desire to become integral members of interdisciplinary teams caring for individuals with psychiatric disorders. Residents will refine their communication skills with patients through leading several medication education groups per week. Upon completion of the residency, residents will be able to identify and implement opportunities to improve the medication-use system in psychiatric practice areas and establish clinical pharmacy services. Residents will be adequately prepared to pursue board certification in psychiatric pharmacy (BCPP) upon completion of the program.
Required experiences include severe mental illness I and II, mood disorders, and outpatient psychiatry. Elective experiences include child/ adolescent psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, chemical dependency, consultant liaison, forensics, and emergency psychiatry. All clinical experiences are in the adult inpatient setting unless otherwise noted. The optional longitudinal teaching certificate program provides opportunities to present large didactic lectures to doctor of pharmacy students and facilitate small group discussions at Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED). An elective longitudinal leadership training program is also offered. Other required activities include a longitudinal research project, didactic lectures for medical residents in adult psychiatry, P&T committee participation, student and PGY1 resident precepting, staff in-services, community outreach, and monthly weekend staffing. Residents will present a poster at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and the College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists (CPNP) Annual Meeting. A platform presentation at the Ohio College of Clinical Pharmacy (OCCP) Fall Meeting is also required.
