Medical Emergency Response and MUE-QI

Advanced life support, code participation, and simulation center education

As part of the medical emergency response learning experience, Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) certification are required for PGY-1 pharmacy residents. Education and training for BLS and ACLS are provided free of charge. Additional simulation training on code cart basics and code-specific competencies are completed in the Mayo Clinic Department of Pharmacy Education and Training Center if needed. PGY-1 pharmacy residents will respond to codes, resuscitations, and traumas during the assigned code weeks.

Medication use evaluation and quality improvement training

All residents are required to complete a medication use evaluation (MUE) and accompanying quality improvement (QI) project during the residency year. The goal of the MUE-QI project is to develop a systematic process designed to determine, improve, and maintain the appropriate and effective use of medications. You are afforded a mentor and are required to complete QI education and training through the Mayo Clinic Quality Academy.
