Residents at WVU Hospitals will have teaching responsibilities at the WVU School of Pharmacy. Residents may be involved in facilitating group discussions, participating in practice laboratory, and evaluating students in integrated patient management modules. Teaching assignments will be determined at scheduling sessions, which are held before the fall and spring semesters. Furthermore, the resident may have some precepting and mentoring responsibilities for entry-level PharmD students on experiential rotations.

The Teaching Certificate Program is optional for all PGY-1 and PGY-2 Residents. The Program is designed to introduce residents to academic literature, contemporary pharmacy profession education, teaching styles, and philosophies. The goal of this program is to provide a forum for program participants to gain knowledge of proven and successful education techniques and to demonstrate experience and accomplishment in these areas. Through didactic participation, completion of formal teaching experiences, and the development of a teaching portfolio, participants can document their participation and experiences. Each participant who completes all program requirements will be awarded a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the year. The certificate will be awarded on behalf of WVU Medicine and the WVU School of Pharmacy.
