YEAR 1: Pharmacy Integrated Management
The program is designed to provide a clinical and operational foundation of hospital pharmacy care through the first year. This year focuses on applying core leadership principles and management skills as integrated experiences. This includes pharmacy management and operations, finance and budgeting, clinical services, informatics and technology, medication safety, inventory, pharmacy service center/line management, and team collaboration with multidisciplinary groups. The fellow will also spend time in three longitudinal selected areas of interest (SAOI). They will be provided the opportunity to manage and lead projects in a hands-on environment. The fellow will have the opportunity to navigate the changing nature of the healthcare landscape through strong partnerships with administrative leaders where they can develop skills that allow them to respond effectively to these changes in a live environment. This allows them to build the knowledge base of a high-performing leader in a variety of leadership and management environments. This first year also provides the fellow the opportunity to find their passions within pharmacy through exposure to selected areas of interest, interacting with diverse patient populations and medical teams, and refining research and teaching skills as they lead and manage.
YEAR 2: Pharmacy Administrative Practice
The second year focuses on ownership and responsibility of the administrative aspects and skills of clinical, operational, and financial domains of pharmacy. The fellow will develop a detailed understanding of area specific operations and become active members of the local management team. As a result, fellows will gain direct exposure to employee relations issues and have substantial opportunities for project specific work that ties to strategic goals. The area the fellow will own is known as the designated area of interest (DAOI). This will be selected based on fellow interest and department needs. Specific requirements will differ slightly depending on the area of concentration of the particular administrative pathway chosen. This allows fellows to experience the role of a people leader and accountability for performance within their selected area.
