PGY1 PHARMACY RESIDENCY with HHSI (detailed information below)
Northeastern University (NU) is a private research university located in the heart of Boston and a leader in interdisciplinary research, urban engagement, and the integration of classroom learning with real-world experience. Harbor Health Services, Inc. (HHSI), headquartered in Mattapan, MA, is comprised of three community health centers and an elder services program. HHSI offers services in internal medicine, family medicine, geriatrics, pediatrics, behavioral health, and women's health to people in the community, many of whom are in underserved populations. This partnership is the recipient of the 2007 Crystal APPLE (Academic-Practice Partnership for Learning Excellence) Award presented by the American Association Colleges of Pharmacy. The program recognizes the contributions of the faculty and administrators at colleges and schools of pharmacy and the administrators who are their practice partners in successfully conducting and supporting quality experiential education in exemplary patient care clinical teaching environments.
The pharmacy practice residency at Harbor Health Services, Inc and Northeastern University will provide a structured education and training experience for the post-graduate pharmacist with a desire to accelerate beyond their entry level professional competence. The goal of this one-year residency is to promote development of expertise in the drug therapy management of chronic disease states commonly encountered in an urban community. The resident will practice in a collaborative environment and have extensive responsibility for the provision of patient care. Core areas of practice will include internal medicine, family medicine, drug information, anticoagulation, geriatrics, and community pharmacy (staffing 1 night / week and 1 weekend / month), with opportunity for experiences in HIV/AIDs and behavioral health.
S/he will be expected to complete a residency project, gain experience in pharmacy administration, participate in experiential/didactic teaching and complete a teaching certificate at Northeastern University. Finally, the resident will develop and refine skills to successfully self-monitor his/her progress and gain the ability to function proficiently as a member of the healthcare team. Upon completion of this program, the resident will have achieved abilities in various areas of pharmacy practice to allow him/her to pursue a wide variety of career paths and to become a leader within the profession. Motivated individuals with a commitment to patient care and educational excellence are encouraged to apply.
