Teaching skills are fostered across the continuum of education. Experiences range from one-on-one preceptorship to formal continuing education presentations. 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. When elective opportunities are utilized this program can prepare a resident for a career in academia and a robust teaching portfolio.
There is an emphasis on patient and health team education. As a clinician and leader, the resident has many opportunities to refine educational skills in every area of residency training.
Residents are not required to complete a teaching certificate as many PGY1 programs offer this opportunity. However, there is support if a resident chooses to participate in the ASHP teaching certificate or one of three certificates offered in the region.
