Medical Emergency Response and MUE-QI

Advanced life-support education and emergency-response participation

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.

Additional pharmacy department training is provided on code cart basics and emergency-specific competencies. You actively respond to all medical emergencies throughout the year, including codes and stroke priorities.

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.
