The Fort HealthCare Pharmacy Residency Program focuses on the complexities of rural pharmacy and builds on the education from a Doctor of Pharmacy program to develop the resident’s clinical skills responsible for medication-related care of patients in both the acute care and ambulatory sector. Upon completion of this training program, residents are prepared to successfully and confidently assume clinical pharmacist roles within health-systems practice which may include transitioning to advanced training in the form of a PGY-2 residency program and/or fellowship. Residents are also provided with ample teaching opportunities which will prepare them to assume teaching and precepting responsibilities as future practitioners.
The overall program includes core learning experiences through rotations at both Fort HealthCare and UW Health. In addition, extensive elective rotation options allow the resident to tailor their experience towards their practice goals and interests. This combined program provides a wide breadth of experience across rural and tertiary healthcare environments. Fort HealthCare is a nationally acclaimed ‘Most Wired’ hospital; awarded ‘Top Workplaces’ by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and an AHA ‘Fit Friendly Worksite’.
