St. Luke's is proud to offer a one-year postgraduate PGY1 ASHP-accredited pharmacy practice residency program. The program is designed for practitioners who are looking for a comprehensive pharmacy residency experience. St. Luke's residency program provides the resident with an opportunity to further develop their skills in Adult Internal Medicine, Critical Care Medicine, Infectious Diseases, Medication Therapy Management and Pharmacy Practice Management. Additional elective rotations are available in Home Care/Hospice, Outpatient Infusion Therapy/Oncology, Informatics, Academia and Emergency Department Medicine. Residents are also involved with pharmacy students at the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy Duluth Campus by working as teaching assistants in the clinical skills lab. Didactic lecturing experiences at the College of Pharmacy are also available for residents who are interested in such an opportunity. If desired, the resident may also complete a teaching certificate.
Each resident will learn project management skills while working on one major research project. Results of the project will be presented at the Midwest Pharmacy Residency Conference and a manuscript will be written for the project. Additionally, residents will conduct a Medication Use Evaluation (MUE), with the results being reported to the appropriate hospital committee(s).
Residents will work every other weekend, working in the central pharmacy one weekend and as a clinical pharmacist on the other weekend. Residents have a day off either before or after they work the weekend. The staffing commitment begins in mid-August and runs through the end of the residency year, with the exception of the weekend preceding the ASHP Midyear Clinical meeting. Residents are required to work one holiday a year, either Thanksgiving or New Year's Day.
