Hospital and Ambulatory Care

Accreditation:
ASHP accredited residency program

Facility:
Phoenix Indian Medical Center serves as a referral center for reservation-based hospitals and clinics in Arizona, Nevada and Utah as well as primary and acute care services for the urban Indian population of the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Rotational Experience Opportunities:
Approximately 2/3 of this program is ambulatory care, drug information and informatics, and administrative, with the remaining 1/3 spent on inpatient learning experiences (inpatient medicine, surgery, obstetrics, newborn nursery and critical care).  There are many outpatient pharmacy-based clinics where pharmacists serve as the primary provider, including anticoagulation, tobacco cessation, immunizations, latent tuberculosis treatment services, and cardiovascular risk reduction.  Residents are also oriented to oncology, HIV/AIDS, other infectious diseases, diabetes, rheumatology, dermatology, endocrinology, and neurology specialty providers.  During the year-long administrative portion of the program, residents can expect to participate in adverse reaction tracking, Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee activities, drug utilization reviews, performance improvement projects, drug policy development, personnel management and leadership training.

A major, longitudinal residency research project will be required to complete the program, including poster presentation at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting.

Special features:
Residents of the “Valley of the Sun” enjoy mild winters and year-round recreational opportunities. Abundant nightlife, theater, and professional sporting events can occasionally be engaged in during your busy residency year.
