Midwestern University College of Pharmacy, Glendale Campus is inviting applications for a PGY-2 Geriatric Pharmacy Residency. The resident will engage in collaborative patient care and provider education in geriatric pharmacy practice. Practice sites include acute care, ambulatory care, and consulting pharmacy.
The residency also has a focus on academic pharmacy practice and teaching. Residents teach didactic courses offered by the Department of Pharmacy Practice and serve as a practitioner role model in the provision of advanced pharmacy practice experiences for students enrolled in our three-calendar year Doctor of Pharmacy program. The resident is expected to complete one major project suitable for publication and present at the ASCP Conference and/or the Southwestern Residency Conference. Additional presentations and travel may be required.
Midwestern University, originally opened in 1900 as the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, provides undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate education in health sciences on two campuses. The Glendale, Arizona campus was founded in 1995 and currently consists of over 29 buildings on 144 acres in a suburban setting with ready access to both active and cultural activities. It is located in one of the most rapidly growing areas in the nation, with 330 days of sunshine per year. Established in 1998, the College of Pharmacy – Glendale attracts a mature, diverse student body to its three-year year-round program.
We are located in the Phoenix valley metropolitan area where entire cities (Sun City, Sun City West, etc) require inhabitants to be minimum 65 years of age which allows our program to have a variety of geriatric patient care learning experiences available. The program is partnered with the Banner Geriatric Medical Fellowship program, where PGY2 geriatric pharmacy residents’ participation is a valued part of the medical fellowship.
