Interdisciplinary Teaching

Our PharmD and Behavioral Health faculty enhance our curriculum by bringing not only a different perspective but also their expertise on how to manage numerous disease states and patient care nuances.

They are part of writing and managing our didactic schedule. They work with residents in close proximity through shadowing opportunities and frequent collaboration. During residency, the time spent with pharmacy and behavioral health expands residents’ ability to use community resources, evidence based medicine, and scholarly activity. Without their involvement the patient centered medical home model wouldn’t be possible.

Scholarly Activity

  • Residents are given dedicated time to focus on their scholarly activity throughout all three years of residency. Residents meet regularly with our Director of Scholarly Activity to provide guidance on these projects.
  • Residents participate regularly in Journal Club to gain comfort with critically reviewing literature.

Didactics & Teaching

  • Workshops are held twice/month and are shared with the St Peter Family Medicine Residency to keep residents connected with their fellow residents.
  • In the intern year, hospital rotations include simulation lab and inpatient morning didactics.
  • Didactics also take place at lunchtime, both done in conjunction with St. Peter Family Medicine and individually at the Chehalis Rural Training Program and are resident driven topics.
