Brief Rotation Descriptions

BCACP Prep

This is a longitudinal required rotation designed to keep residents on track for studying and sitting for their BCACP board certification exam upon completion of their residency year. Residents will be provided with ASHP study materials along with a study schedule.

Camp STIX

This is a one week block of required fun where residents learn about Support, Tradition, Information and X-citement alongside 200 children with type I diabetes. Residents will be members of an interdisciplinary medical team responsible for the safety of campers and counselors while getting hands on experience with insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors (CGMs). The rotation is designed to teach residents what it is like living with diabetes through the eyes of children ages 9-16. Until there's a cure, there's camp!

Geriatrics

This is a 4 week elective block rotation that takes place at the Providence Visiting Nurses Association and is designed for the resident to develop expertise in medication management of the ambulatory geriatric population as well as gain substantial academic-related experiences.

High Risk Pregnancy

This is a required longitudinal rotation at the High Risk Pregnancy Clinic where residents will manage diabetes in pregnancy. Residents will share a patient panel with their preceptor but will work towards practicing independently within the clinic.

Internal Medicine

This is a required longitudinal rotation at the Providence Medical Park Clinic. The purpose of this rotation is for residents to have the opportunity to practice independently with preceptors available remotely to help guide clinical decision making as needed. Residents will have their own patient panel and time spent in clinic will gradually increase as the year progresses.

Orientation

This is a required 5 block rotation designed to orient residents to the staffing sites and allow time for intensive training at the three clinics where residents will spend a majority of their residency year. During this rotation residents will learn how pharmacists are integrated within the Spokane Teaching Health Clinic and High Risk Pregnancy Clinic.

Pharmacotherapy Clinic

This is a required 4 week block rotation at the Sacred Heart Pharmacotherapy Clinic where residents will be exposed to clinical pharmacy services within a pharmacist run clinic. Residents will be introduced to pharmacist managed anticoagulation, hepatitis C, rheumatologic and dermatologic disorders.

Population Health

This is a required longitudinal rotation where residents will gain hands on experience helping patients meet their health maintenance needs. Residents will select at least one quality metric to focus during their residency year and will develop and implement plans for improvement.

Quality Improvement

This is a required longitudinal rotation where residents will complete a yearlong quality service project. Projects will be focused on developing and implementing new clinical pharmacy services within Providence Medical Group.

Spokane Teaching Health Clinic

This is a required longitudinal rotation at the Spokane Teaching Health Clinic where residents will conduct annual wellness visits with emphasis on medication use and pharmacist recommendations/interventions. Residents will share a patient panel with their preceptor but will work towards practicing independently within the clinic.
