During the academic year, you have the opportunity to attend professional meetings for the purpose of networking, professional development, and service to the profession. Funding for travel-related expenses, such as airfare, hotel, and registration fees, is provided by the residency program.
PGY-1 residents are required to attend Vizient, the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting, ASHP state affiliate meeting(s), and a regional residency research conference. Additional meetings are based on the discretion of residency program leadership. Typically, you are allotted a maximum of 10 professional travel days a year.
As a resident, you have the opportunity to participate on departmental or institutional committees to optimize the residency training experience. Through this experience, trainees gain appreciation for consensus-building and provide valuable input into practice decisions. A preceptor or committee member typically attends all meetings with the resident to provide guidance throughout the year.
