IU Health offers a dynamic, multi-hospital residency program that offers a customizable experience for each of our residents. IU Health clinicians provide patient care in internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics, poison control, nutrition support, home infusion, nephrology, infectious diseases, surgery, cardiology, hematology/oncology/BMT, critical care, organ transplantation, pulmonology, neonatology, drug information, investigational drug services, ambulatory care, and administration. Didactic and experiential teaching of student pharmacists and completion of a research project are required.
IU Health’s ASHP-accredited PGY1 Residency Program emphasizes the development of advanced knowledge and application of pharmacotherapeutics in the provision of multi-disciplinary, quality patient care. This program cultivates the skills of practice management and education and the professional attitudes of self-evaluation, self-improvement, and accountability. The successful resident will demonstrate a desire to learn, sincere interest in the profession, and dedication to achieving all outcomes of the residency.
The ASHP accreditation standard provides criteria that every program must meet in order to receive and maintain accreditation. Although the standard requires experiences in certain core areas, there is room for concentration in a practice area and for additional experiences. Our program includes developing a core skill set in drug information and literature evaluation, pharmacotherapy evaluation and management, project based research and team functioning, presentation development and delivery, and direct patient interaction.
