Elective Rotations (2)

Electives may be arranged from well-established ambulatory pharmaceutical care areas or developed from non-traditional areas. The selection of elective experiences should be based on the resident’s interest area and previous experiences and is also subject to approval by the Residency Program Director (RPD). Because of the depth of this tertiary care facility and her sister facilities, Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH) and Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System (CAVHS), the resident has a wide variety of electives available spanning practice sites from pediatrics to geriatrics and numerous specialty areas. Non-pharmacist faculty from UAMS, CAVHS or ACH as well as the community may serve as experience preceptors once the resident has demonstrated the readiness to practice independently as determined by the RPD. The resident may also select any of the core areas as an advanced elective experience.

Additional responsibilities/projects throughout the year include:
