Clark Memorial Pharmacy Team
Clark Memorial Health offers a one-year-hospital-based Pharmacy Residency program for postgraduate students interested in working in the hospital setting. The program is designed to prepare pharmacists for generalized clinical pharmacy practice and the expanding role pharmacists are playing in patient care at hospitals. Our PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program is pending accreditation by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
The program is designed to expose residents to all aspects of hospital pharmacy including:
- medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions.
- developing professional leadership skills
- fostering growth of a competent, efficient, and strong clinical practitioner collaborating within a healthcare team setting
- educating patients and healthcare professionals.
Clark Memorial Health is an accredited chest pain center which is licensed to perform cardiac catheterization 24/7 and has the busiest Emergency Department in Southern Indiana with about 45,000 visits per year. The pharmacy at Clark is progressive, offering many clinical services. Clinical pharmacists work decentralized which allows pharmacists to round and provide pharmaceutical care.
Scott Memorial Health, a critical access center, is part of our facility and offers a different hospital experience. Automated dispensing cabinets are located throughout the hospital, all order entry is Computer Provider Order Entry, and order entry has multiple clinical decision support systems.
Residents will have a Residency Mentor Program which they will meet with their preceptor on a quarterly basis.
Residents will have a dedicated resident office space apart from central pharmacy.
