When does residency start, and when are residents expected to be licensed?

What is the Teaching Certificate?

Through a partnership with Idaho State University (ISU) College of Pharmacy, our program provides a teaching certificate. This certificate can be obtained by participating in diverse teaching methods offered at both Terry Reilly and ISU throughout the year.

What does a typical week for a resident look like?

Depending on the rotation, the resident can expect to work alongside their preceptor and other clinic providers and staff within “pods” or within the clinic pharmacy. Day to day activities within any given week will be determined by the preceptor for a given rotation. Residents can also be expected to work a shift at a TRHS pharmacy, depending on need. These shifts, if assigned, will always be on a weekday.

What disease states are managed as part of the disease state management rotation?

Residents can expect to manage an array of chronic disease states, including diabetes, anticoagulation, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and others as part of a collaborative practice agreement.
