The Chickasaw Nation Pharmacy Residency program provides the opportunity for residents to achieve professional competence in patient care and practice management and to develop clinical judgement and leadership skills as they become familiar with the Chickasaw Nation Department of Health. The residency provides the opportunity to develop skills while working in a collaborative environment involving pharmacy, nursing and medical staff in inpatient and outpatient settings. Pharmacy residents provide pharmaceutical services in the areas of therapeutics, pharmacokinetics, disease state management and pharmacy consultative services. Residents also provide educational programs to pharmacy, nursing and medical staff and the community. Residents are involved in quality improvement activities, pharmacy distribution, automated medication delivery systems, use of electronic software, database management and administrative and regulatory activities.
