Teaching Experiences and Transitioning to a Career in Clinical Pharmacy

The PGY2 residency in emergency medicine at Mission Hospitals is affiliated with the University of North Carolina Eshelman School of Pharmacy (UNC ESOP), which provides a number of educational opportunities throughout the year. The EM PGY2 is responsible for the preparation and delivery of 2-3 didactic lectures for pharmacy students. Residents at Mission also participate in continuing education activities available to pharmacists throughout the region. A teaching certificate and training course is offered to PGY2 EM residents with no such prior experience. Prior to the completion of the residency program, the PGY2 acts as primary preceptor during a full teaching rotation in which they also are involved in teaching-based discussions and activities. A goal of the residency program is to provide graduating residents with the skills needed to work in a clinical setting as well as become a well-rounded educator.
