Teaching Experiences

In addition to the individual supervision received during the psychiatric pharmacy residency, classroom experience is also available through the medical residency training program. All classes are conducted by members of the program’s clinical teaching staff.

Residents will have the opportunity to further develop their teaching skills throughout the year. Educational responsibilities include didactic and clinical instruction of pharmacy and medical students, psychology interns, psychiatry residents, and medical staff. “Psychotropics Made Simple” lectures for medical students, psychopharmacology lectures for psychiatry residents, resident rounds with pharmacy students (APPE), and Case Conference and Grand Rounds presentations to the medical staff are activities in which the residents participate. Additionally, satellite video conferencing for these activities is available to further enhance the educational learning environment.

Other presentations during the year include (but are not limited to) periodic case presentations, journal club presentations, and nursing educational in-services, as well as presenting projects and MUEs to the Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee.

UMKC School of Pharmacy offers a teaching certificate program that is optional for the pharmacy resident. Classes for this program are held monthly from September through May.
