Pharmacy Department Highlights

Pharmacy Residents at the Durham VA will practice under the guidance of a department of over 100 staff members with a team of 42 Clinical Pharmacy Specialists (CPS). The department provides 24 hour centralized services in addition to clinical support provided by our CPS team. The CPS provide progressive, multi-disciplinary, patient-centered care in a wide variety of clinical areas under a scope of practice that grants prescriptive privileges. In addition to their clinical responsibilities, many of our residency program preceptors also serve as preceptors for the regional schools of pharmacy, conduct clinical research projects, participate in scholarly activities, and serve as leaders for numerous state and national pharmacy organizations. The department also offers a VA Learning Opportunities Residency (VALOR) program for pharmacy students.

Beyond the traditional learning experiences of a residency program, our residents will also have the opportunity to participate in teaching certificate programs, co-precept pharmacy students on experiential rotations, and serve as a teaching assistant for a clinical practice lab at UNC. Residents will also receive support and guidance from the Residency Program Director, the Residency Advisory Committee, the Research Advisory Committee, and a formal mentorship program.
