Oregon State Hospital is a state operated, adult 600+ bed, forensic psychiatric hospital located in Salem, Oregon with a smaller campus 60 miles south in Junction City. We offer one PGY-1 residency to someone strongly interested in psychiatric pharmacy. A team of seasoned preceptors will mentor the resident through a variety of rotations with focus including but not limited to: clinical pharmacy skills in general medicine (chronic care management, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, asthma, hypertension, neurology and geriatrics) and psychiatric medicine; medication safety, antibiotic stewardship, infection prevention, laboratory ordering, anticoagulation and clozapine management, pharmacy informatics, education/teaching, discharge medication preparation, leadership skills, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee work, other hospital and department committee work, and multiple projects (medication reviews, drug class reviews, MUE's, formulary review work, polypharmacy reviews, policy/protocol work, presentations and journal club). The resident will also coordinate schedules and tasks for two APPE students on-going through the year, coaching and mentoring them in general medicine and psychiatric medicine care with clinical case reviews, journal club, topic presentations, Pharmacy and Therapeutics medication reviews, drug class reviews and MUE's. A teaching certificate is available to be earned through collaboration with our two Schools of Pharmacy in the state. A final research project will be prepared and presented at one statewide, regional or national conference, usually CPNP yearly conference.
