Our pharmacy department utilizes an integrative practice model, where pharmacists have responsibilities for both distributive and clinical functions. Advancement of our practice model includes the incorporation of state-of-the-art technological systems
and a comprehensive electronic medical record.
Ambulatory care pharmacy services include: anticoagulation, diabetes, discharge/transitions of care management, pharmacist clinic (collaborative practice agreement to provide medication management for patients with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia,
asthma/COPD, smoking cessation, etc.) and infectious disease clinics.
Our residency preceptors are actively engaged in practice, education and scholarship. The majority of preceptors hold adjunct appointments with Wayne State University, Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions, the University
of Michigan, and/or the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine and enjoy productive collaborative relationships with these key partners.
In recognition of their accomplishments, members of our pharmacy team have received external recognition of excellence at the local, state, and national level. Our preceptors hold Fellow status within national professional organizations as well
as discipline-specific and specialty board certification.
