“Wonderful course for someone looking to make the transition into hospital pharmacy. Syed has great resources in a fairly low volume hospital, making it the perfect setting to train. Particularly useful for pharmacists with clinical knowledge and looking to gain real life experience before going solo. I learned more here than many of my final year of clerkships” -Yana Grinberg, New York
Hospital Pharmacy Prep Courses
You have the option of registering for the 3 day prep course, or the expedited 2 day prep course.
These courses have been compiled and meticulously designed after working in different hospital pharmacy settings for over 25 years:- dealing with & implementing different computer systems including clinical pharmacy programs, training Pharmacists to assume clinical roles by working independently with Doctors and Nurses to improve patient outcomes, while maintaining financial viability for the organizations.
We designed these courses primarily for retail pharmacists or new pharmacy graduates to prepare them for Hospital Pharmacy Practice, or to provide a jump start for Pharmacist who have just entered the hospital pharmacy arena. The focus of this program is to expose you to the work settings of an acute care hospital pharmacy in a decentralized environment, or a LTAC (long term Acute Care), or a Rehabilitation Hospital. This will also prepare you for an IV Infusion Pharmacy or a Pharmacy setting offering a combination of these services.
The 3 day course is the most popular program which starts at 8 am on Friday morning and ends at 3 pm on Sunday. Everything you need to know about the hospital pharmacy is covered in this class including IV Certification, with hands on IV training.
