Professional Practice Experiences


Precepting students and PGY1 residents provides the PGY2 resident with the opportunity to refine their teaching skills and further deepen their own clinical knowledge base. Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist is a rotation site for pharmacy students from Campbell, Wingate, and High Point Universities. Precepting responsibilities are available on many rotations.

Each resident will staff in the IDS Pharmacy one day every four weeks, and will be part of the on call rotation for IDS for the second half of the second year. Each resident will staff in the inpatient pharmacy every 3rd weekend and 3 holidays, as well as one evening clinical shift (4 hours) each week.
