PGY1 Acute Care Track Information


The Cape Fear Valley Medical Center Pharmacy Residency program is designed to produce a well-rounded, independent professional through experiences in clinical practice as well as teaching, basic research, and professional activities. The primary emphasis of the residency program will be on the development of practice skills across a wide variety of practice settings. Clinical skills and responsibilities will be developed and enhanced under the mentorship of multiple preceptors. Residents will engage in teaching experiences allowing them to develop and refine their communication skills and abilities as a teacher by completing a teaching certificate in conjunction with Campbell University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences. As part of the residency training, residents will have an appointment as a clinical instructor with Campbell University, and will have the opportunity to teach pharmacy students in various didactic settings as well as precept students in clinical settings. Residents will participate in ongoing scholarly activities to further develop their problem-solving skills and ability to interpret, generate, and disseminate knowledge.
