The department of pharmacy is staffed with over 200 employees, 100 pharmacists and 101 non-pharmacist support staff and is affiliated with several Colleges of Pharmacy within and outside the state of Florida. Our pharmacy residency preceptors have a proven commitment to residency training. Their backgrounds represent a diverse mix of experiences and training:
- Pharmacy practice residency training
- Specialty residency training (e.g., critical care, nutrition support, emergency medicine, solid organ transplantation, pediatrics, infectious diseases, ambulatory care, oncology)
- Board certification
- American College of Critical Care Medicine (ACCM) Fellowship Induction
- American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP) Fellowship Induction
In addition to a focus on direct patient care, preceptors are involved in scholarly activities such as scientific journal peer review (e.g., Critical Care Medicine, Pharmacotherapy), active textbook and journal publication, platform and poster presentations and research. These practitioners are actively involved with local, state, national and international professional organizations (e.g., Florida Society of Health-System Pharmacists, American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, American College of Clinical Pharmacy, Society of Critical Care Medicine, American Society of Transplant Physicians). With over 30 dedicated pharmacy preceptors, the pharmacy department is a fertile ground for training future pharmacy practitioners specializing in the care of hospital practice, teaching, and scholarly activity.
