In addition to critical care, geriatrics, and other specialty services, Aurora West Allis is home to the Aurora Women’s Pavilion, which provides comprehensive women’s health services including maternal and fetal medicine and a Level III neonatal intensive care unit.
Residents complete learning experiences in adult medicine, critical care, antimicrobial stewardship, drug policy and administration among others, and customize their residency based on individual needs and interests.
Each pharmacy resident also completes a residency project. Pharmacy residency projects are practice-based and align with the department’s strategic plan. Residents formally present their projects at a statewide conference and receive the opportunity to publish their work.
You must complete general and program-specific requirements, including core and elective learning experiences, to graduate from your residency program.
All Pharmacy Residency candidates must complete an on-site interview. Interview dates cannot be rescheduled.
Our program’s most important assets are our people. Becoming a pharmacist requires two key ingredients: a motivated learner and a motivated teacher. Our preceptors, with diverse backgrounds in pharmacy, are excellent role models and teachers to our learners.
