Healthcare Quality and Medication Safety Residency/Fellowship

Healthcare-Quality-and-Medication-Safety-ResidencyFellowship AMS

The post-graduate training program, established in January 2011 at the University of Florida College of Pharmacy and College of Medicine, trains pharmacists to establish and lead clinical quality improvement and patient safety programs. The trainee works collaboratively with the residency/fellowship director (Anzeela Schentrup). Areas of focus are medication safety, consultant pharmacy, process improvement, healthcare administration, and teaching. Trainees will learn how to effectively lead in an interdisciplinary environment to continuously improve healthcare using a team-based approach. Training is focused in the ambulatory care setting, however many opportunities for combined hospital and ambulatory care initiatives exist. This is preferably a 2-year program where the 2nd fellowship year focuses on quality improvement research, however 1-year training opportunities will be considered. The trainee also participates in numerous teaching activities at the UF College of Pharmacy. A unique Teaching Certificate Course is available. Benefits (e.g., health insurance) are available.
