Duty Hours

The residency program follows duty hour definitions and recommendations from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Duty hours are defined as all clinical and academic activities related to the program; i.e., patient care (both inpatient and outpatient), administrative duties relative to patient care, the provision for transfer of patient care, time spent in-house during call activities and scheduled activities such as conferences. Duty hours do not include reading and preparation time spent away from the duty site.

  • Duty hours must be limited to 80 hours per week, averaged over a four-week period, inclusive of all in-house call activities.
  • Residents must be provided with one day in seven free from all educational and clinical responsibilities, averaged over a four-week period.

Clinical Staffing

Pharmacy services are provided by teams of pharmacists within an integrated practice model. These teams of pharmacists are de-centrally based and provide care as part of the interprofessional team through patient care rounds, clinical monitoring, medication order review, admission histories, first-dose teaching, discharge teaching and care coordination, code and stroke response teams, drug information provision and medication-use stewardship.

Residents staff in the same roles as their preceptors on two different teams over the course of the residency year, developing confidence and competence for PGY2 training or employment following residency. This is supported by a preceptor on weekends dedicated to resident feedback and available for consultation. On average, the resident will staff 12 hours per week, including every other weekend.
