Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist
Julie Asmus, VT, BS, PharmD, BCPS is a clinical pharmacist and a pharmacy residency preceptor for Fort HealthCare. She received a Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Wisconsin – Madison School of Pharmacy in 2006. Her prior experience as a veterinary technician, working closely with doctors of veterinary medicine and explaining pet medications to clients inspired her to continue her educations and become a pharmacist. Her prior leadership experience includes being a lead pharmacist for Fort HealthCare’s orthopedic “joint camp” program and teaching nurses, interns, technicians and other staff on performing medication histories. Julie has had various experiences working in hospital, subacute care, retail and veterinary pharmacy. Julie is a Board Certificated Pharmacotherapy Specialist, obtaining that honor in 2017 and she holds that certificate currently. She maintains membership in the Pharmacy Society of Wisconsin.
Julie’s practice interests include transitions of care, including all aspects of medication reconciliation, discharge coordination, patient education, and veterinary pharmacy. She enjoys teaching other staff medication history techniques and even teaches a class on medication history required by all new nursing staff. In her free time she enjoys volunteering with the Fort Atkinson Kennel Club teaching puppy classes and with the American Brittany Rescue helping foster dogs find permanent homes. Her main pass times are training her canine companions for competition in various dog sports, and spending time with family and friends in the great outdoors.
The inpatient pharmacy promotes a safe and regulatory compliant medication management system within the hospital building and serves as an expert resource on safe and regulatory compliant medication use to our Fort Medical Group clinics. Pharmacy services are decentralized with a pharmacist who spends several hours each day with the inpatient care areas in a supportive role.
