The combined PGY1/PGY2 Medication-Use Safety and Policy (MUSP) Residency at Intermountain Healthcare provides residents with 2 years of specialized training within the Utah Region of a large, integrated healthcare delivery network. The resident spends the first year honing their clinical foundation and spends the majority of their time at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. During this year, the resident may choose from rotations at 6 medical centers, obtain a teaching certificate, conduct a practice-based research project, and participate in both local and system-level medication initiatives. During the second year of the program, the resident works within the System-wide Drug Information Service* to develop their skills in formulary management, medication policy, literature retrieval and evaluation, and medication safety across the continuum of patient care. Training in compliance and regulatory affairs; pharmacy management; managed care; sourcing and supply chain; and research/outcomes analytics will also be offered.
Upon completion of this program, the resident will be prepared to work as a specialist in drug information, medication safety, formulary management, or medication policy in a variety of practice settings.
*As of 2020, the Drug Information Service operates on a flexwork model (primarily remote with limited in-office activities).
