Teaching skills are fostered across the continuum of education. Experiences range from one-on-one preceptorship to large group didactics. Residents have the opportunity to teach pharmacy students and residents, medical residents, nurse practitioner students, physician assistant students and other members of the health care team. This program prepares the resident for a career in academia and provides a robust teaching portfolio upon completion of the program.
