The primary goal of this program is to develop residents into independent and confident informatics pharmacists who possess in-depth informatics knowledge and integrated professional attributes. Designed to provide broad exposure to a variety of areas in pharmacy informatics as well as clinical informatics, our program emphasizes the development of skills in medication related data mining and analysis, clinical and didactic teaching, pharmacy informatics principles, and pharmacy leadership. Great importance is placed on the individual goals and expectations of the resident.
Pharmacy informatics incorporates experiences in a variety of clinical and non-clinical applications. The interactive teaching environment of UChicago Medicine allows residents to facilitate small group discussions, precept pharmacy student experiences, and present classroom lectures. The teaching certificate program allows residents to learn innovative teaching methodologies and mentoring techniques from academic faculty. Residents will complete a year-long informatics-related project.
Doctor of Pharmacy degree and completion of a ASHP-accredited PGY1 Pharmacy Residency, eligibility for Illinois licensure and completed application via PhORCAS.
