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.
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.
