The Cardiology Pharmacy Residency Program is a postgraduate training program that focuses on the development of clinical skills needed to provide safe and effective patient-centered medication therapy management. Graduates of our program are prepared to fulfill roles in cardiology that range from clinical specialist to faculty or leadership roles.
UMMMC is equipped with three cardiac catheterization suites providing 24-hour services with an annual caseload of more than 3,000 patients. The hospital has a 16-bed Cardiac Intensive Care Unit for surgical and medical patients and manages more than 1,500 patients in the outpatient Anticoagulation Clinic. Additionally, in 2018 UMMMC expanded its advanced heart failure services to include a ventricular assist device (VAD) program.
The residents will have the opportunity to develop and refine their presentation skills through formal research presentations, case conferences, journal club presentations, and cardiology fellows conference. Residents will present their research at a minimum of one national conference and one regional conference during the residency year. Residents will also gain teaching experience and precepting experience by serving as co-preceptors for students and PGY1 residents.
All residents participate in an in-house, on-call program and are trained to provide clinical services, including participation in the management of medical emergencies (Code Blue, Stroke, Level 1 and Level 2 traumas) during these on-call shifts.
