Pharmacy Residency Program

Description

 The Iowa City VA Health Care System (ICVAHCS) in Iowa City, Iowa is a comprehensive tertiary health care center, teaching hospital, and research facility. It has a strong and effective affiliation with the University of Iowa College of Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy. The Medical Center operates 83 beds, including 37 medicine, 21 surgery, 10 intensive care, and 15 psychiatry beds. The Medical Center operates seven community based outpatient clinics in Bettendorf, Waterloo, Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, Ottumwa and Decorah, Iowa; and Galesburg, Quincy and Sterling, Illinois. The Medical Center also operates a satellite outpatient clinic in Coralville, Iowa.  Our facility offers two residency programs. Four PGY-1 pharmacy residency positions and one joint PGY-2 psychiatry residency position with the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

 The ICVAHCS PGY 1-Pharmacy residency program prepares graduates to assume general clinical pharmacist positions in the inpatient and ambulatory care setting, to serve as adjunct faculty for a college of pharmacy, to pursue board certification and to be eligible for PGY-2 residency training. The ICVAHCS is a teaching hospital providing the unique opportunity for our residents to engage in direct patient care, practice management and medication related education. We provide residents experience in anticoagulation clinic, drug information/formulary management, primary care, internal medicine, and pharmacy management.  Residents will also have the opportunity to gain experience in endocrine, ICU, surgery, transplant, oncology, pain and virology. Besides clinical activities, each PGY-1 resident will participate in patient and staff education, present formal lectures and case discussions, and precept University of Iowa pharmacy clerkship students.  In addition, residents will conduct a research project, present results, and produce a manuscript suitable for publication.
