Campbell University and Cape Fear Valley Health offer a PGY1 residency program to develop knowledge and skills to provide pharmacotherapy for inpatients and outpatients through two tracks – acute care and ambulatory care. Cape Fear Valley Health’s large system of clinics and hospitals serve as practice sites for a variety of clinical rotations for pharmacy residents and students including internal medicine, ambulatory care, cardiology, infectious disease, pediatrics, geriatrics, oncology, critical care, and emergency medicine. The health system also has a Graduate Medical Education program associated with Campbell University providing significant opportunities for interprofessional collaboration. Upon completion of the residency program, residents will be able to practice as a pharmacist clinician in an inpatient or ambulatory setting or be eligible for PGY2 positions in the specialty of their choosing. The program will offer 6 PGY1 positions (4 acute care track; 2 ambulatory care track), competitive salary and benefits, as well as a travel stipend to ASHP Midyear, the NCAP annual meeting, and the Southeastern Residency Conference in Athens, Georgia.

The teams will care for patients at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center along with a number of clinics. The pharmacy resident will be responsible for providing pharmaceutical care to patients on their respective rotation. In addition, the pharmacy resident will develop and institute new pharmacy initiatives as appropriate.
The resident will learn the fundamentals of teaching during a teaching development series. These teaching skills will be applied during multiple courses for Doctor of Pharmacy students at Campbell University in didactic and case discussion sessions. The residents will also assist in precepting 4th year Doctor of Pharmacy students and have opportunities for providing continuing education programs for healthcare practitioners. A teaching certificate will be awarded to residents who complete the teaching development series.
