A Message from the Residency Program Director

Residency training is an intense learning process that springboards pharmacists to practice at the upper level of their license. To maximize the resident learning curve, the Residency preceptors at Abington Hospital have developed a core learning experience, called Pharmacotherapy, where all residents receive a short, four-week “clinical boot-camp” for hospital practice.

Pharmacotherapy has three main objectives: learning the process for patient care data retrieval, analysis, documentation and presentation; developing assessment and self-evaluation skills during one-on-one dedicated time with preceptors; and building a foundation of knowledge in core pharmacy areas including basic hospital infectious diseases, anticoagulation, pain management, critical care and many others.

This core learning experience provides camaraderie between co-residents and builds on prior clinical knowledge and skills required throughout the residency year. By constructing a foundational learning experience, all future rotations begin at the same baseline allowing residents to master advanced concepts during an accelerated learning curve.

The Pharmacotherapy rotation is only one example of the contemporary residency training philosophy at Abington Hospital-Jefferson Health. We invite you to peruse our website at your leisure and do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your interest in our residency program. We look forward to your application.

Sincerely,
