The resident will receive an appointment as a Clinical Instructor at the Drake University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences. This will allow the resident the opportunity to complete attend a series of seminars for new faculty at Drake and develop their experiential teaching skills by co-precepting Doctor of Pharmacy students from Drake on rotation at Iowa Methodist Medical Center. This will include day-to-day instruction in patient care rounds, participation in Journal Club, Pharmacy rounds and other activities. Additionally, residents will have several opportunities for didactic teaching at Drake including completely co-teaching an elective course in the College of Pharmacy that will give residents the opportunity to design and deliver lectures, active learning exercises, examination question development and grading coursework. At the end of the year graduating residents will receive a teaching certificate.
