This community-based residency program uses a hands-on approach to incorporate both inpatient and outpatient experiences to provide the resident with both clinical and community skills. After orientation to the Pharmacy Department, the resident will begin training to work in the in-hospital community pharmacy, as well as begin a series of rotations and other longitudinal activities designed to meet the goals and objectives of The Valley Hospital/Valley Health Pharmacy PGY1 Community-Based Residency Program. The longitudinal focus in Transitions of Care consists of interpreting and verifying outpatient prescriptions in addition to providing direct patient care throughout the residency program. During clinical rotations, the resident will participate in all aspects of patient medication use therapy, including collection, assessment, planning, selection, monitoring, reconciliation, safety, and follow-up. The resident will work as part of the multidisciplinary team, advising physicians, nurses and patients on the appropriate medication use. By working in both clinical and community pharmacy settings, the community resident will become a well-rounded pharmacist, equipped with the knowledge and skills for a variety of pharmacy settings in their future career.
