WMC Pharmacy Department

The WMC Pharmacy Department serves as a resource for practicing pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, residents, students and other health professionals. As a tertiary teaching facility, pharmacy students have the opportunity to complete a variety of rotations in acute care, critical care, pediatrics, long-term care and specialty electives.

Students will be responsible for providing clinical pharmacy services for the team. They are expected to be familiar with patients, their medical history, disease state and home medication regimens. The student will be expected to provide drug therapy recommendations based on current evidence-based guidelines and individual patient needs, provide drug therapy monitoring recommendations and answer drug information questions. The student will provide patient education when needed, assist in clarifying patients’ home medication regimens for medication reconciliation and help manage pharmacy consults. The student is expected to actively participate with all members of the healthcare team.
