PHAR 773 - ADVANCED PATIENT CARE-ACUTE CARE MEDICINE
Students will apply the facts, information, and concepts gained in didactic coursework to professional practice through practical experience under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist in a hospital setting. The adult internal medicine advanced practice rotation requires students to integrate knowledge and theoretical concepts across the curriculum in an environment that requires appropriate interactions between students, preceptors, other healthcare professionals, and patients. The goal is to enable students to recommend and provide safe, effective, and cost-efficient patient care by developing evidence-based, patient-specific pharmacotherapy plans that optimize patient outcomes and have the support of the other healthcare practitioners involved. Students should gain experience in treating common disease states in the adult internal medicine population, including but not limited to endocrine disorders, cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases, respiratory diseases, and renal/liver dysfunction.
