Professional Development

Presentations and Projects

  • Grand Rounds (Pharmacotherapy CE Program)
  • Independent research project
  • Poster and/or platform presentation at national meeting
  • Data/Administration project(s)
  • Rotation-specific assignments


  • Wake Forest Baptist Health is a rotation site for students from Campbell University, Wingate University, and High Point University Schools of Pharmacy
  • Direct precepting opportunities include fourth year pharmacy students and PGY1 residents
  • Residents will deliver educational programing and participate in preceptor development opportunities
  • Additional teaching opportunities may be available

Teaching Certificate

At the beginning of the year, if they have not completed one previously, residents have the opportunity to enroll in a teaching certificate program sponsored by the Department of Pharmacy. This program is intended to develop the resident’s knowledge, skills, and abilities to teach effectively in a wide variety of settings. The certificate program also aims to enhance the resident’s ability to provide constructive evaluations, as well as incorporate feedback into their own teaching. Many of the residency-required presentations qualify as experiences that help the resident complete the certificate program.


The PGY2 Pharmacy Population Health Management and Data Analytics resident will be mentored throughout the completion of an independent research project and writing a manuscript suitable for publication. The resident will work with a research advisor and research team to complete the following: a project protocol, methods presentation to the Pharmacy Residency Research Committee, IRB submission, data collection, data analysis, and development of a manuscript.
