Pharmacy Nutrition Support Residency
The primary focus of the UW Hospital and Clinics Pharmacy Nutrition Support Residency is to become a competent clinician in Nutrition Support pharmacy.
The resident will learn to optimize the care of patients receiving specialized nutrition support by participating in daily rounds of the Nutrition Support Team consisting of a diverse population of patients including medical, surgical, critical care, and trauma patients. The Adult Nutrition Support Team sees 12 to 25 inpatients daily and three to five outpatients daily. The Pediatric Nutrition Support Team sees five to 10 inpatients daily and three to five outpatients daily.
The resident will contribute to the body of nutrition-related knowledge by completing a project suitable for publication. Elective rotations are tailored to the resident.
Residents become Certified Nutrition Support Clinicians. Residents will also be eligible to pursue board certified Nutrition Support Pharmacist status. After completion of the residency, the resident will be proficient to pursue careers in either inpatient nutrition support or outpatient infusion pharmacy.
