PGY1 - Pharmacy (43400)

Preceptors: Montgomery, Dave; Johnson, Andrew; Warner, Adam; Brousseau, Stacy

Description:

Preceptor: Resident's Primary Preceptor

General Description:

Throughout the residency year, the resident will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of teaching opportunities. Residents will gain teaching skills in an assortment of formats. Teaching opportunities may come in the form of formal or informal lectures to pharmacy students, medical students/residents, physicians, nurses, other health care professionals, or the public, or may come in the form of developing written educational materials.

Bronson Methodist Hospital is a teaching hospital and associates closely with the Ferris State University (FSU) College of Pharmacy and is also partnered with the Western Michigan University medical school. Bronson also affiliates with multiple area schools of nursing. Therefore, residents have the opportunity to educate students (pharmacy, nursing, medical, and other health care professions) and medical residents as well as serve as adjunct preceptors for FSU pharmacy students while they are on clinical rotation at Bronson. Didactic teaching experiences with FSU College of Pharmacy are also available. Other teaching opportunities may be available based upon the interests of the resident.

Residents also have the opportunity to obtain a Residency Teaching Certificate through Ferris State University's Pharmacy Education Development and Lecture Series for pharmacy residents (PEDALS). This is a program that the Western Michigan Pharmacy Residency Network (WMPRN) has developed. The program was implemented so that residents can gain experience in teaching and learning, document experience in teaching and learning by creation of a teaching portfolio, and participate in seminars with pharmacy faculty to discuss topics relevant to teaching. Upon successful completion of the program, learners will receive a certificate of completion.

Residents will also have the opportunity to give other oral presentations and written educational material to a variety of audiences throughout the year (which may include, but are not limited to journal clubs, nursing in- services, project presentations, etc) as determined by preceptors or the residency program director.

Preceptor Interaction:

The resident's assigned primary preceptor will help coordinate the longitudinal teaching and presentation responsibilities for the year, and will be responsible for providing both formal (scheduled) and informal feedback and evaluation. The primary preceptor will also seek input on the resident's performance, progress and completion dates for documentation in the quarterly evaluation tracking sheet. The department director, clinical coordinator and manager will meet with the resident as needed, depending on the projects the resident will be presenting and who it will be presented to.

Evaluation Strategy:

  • The primary preceptor will meet periodically with the resident and will provide feedback and suggestions for improvement. These interactions will be documented as formative evaluations in PharmAcademic.
  • Summative evaluation (quarterly): This evaluation summarizes the resident's performance throughout the learning experience.  Specific comments should be included to provide the resident with information he/she can use to improve his/her performance throughout the remainder of the residency.   The resident and the preceptor will independently complete the assigned evaluation in PharmAcademic, then the resident and the preceptor will meet to compare and discuss the evaluations.  This discussion will provide feedback both on performance of the activities and the accuracy of the resident's self-assessment skills. Evaluations will be finalized following this discussion.
  • Preceptor and Learning Experience evaluations must be completed in PharmAcademic by the last day of the learning experience.
