Teaching is a large component of our program. The PGY2 resident will have many opportunities to precept/teach and their training will include learning how to incorporate teaching into their clinical responsibilities. UC San Diego is a teaching institution affiliated with UCSD Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SSPPS) and UCSD School of Medicine. The PGY2 psychiatry resident will be a conference facilitator for 3rd year pharmacy students at UCSD SSPPS for the Therapeutics Course (Psychiatry/Neurology Modules). The resident will be required to participate in weekly preconferences and serve as a facilitator for a group of students. The resident will create patient case and SOAP keys for teaching purposes and may assist with creating/grading oral and written exams and simulation exercises. The resident will also be given opportunities to provide didactic lectures within the course. The PGY2 resident will also have multiple opportunities to precept 4th year SSPPS pharmacy students and PGY1 pharmacy practice residents, as well as to work with UCSD physician interns, residents and fellows on most, if not all, rotations. In addition, the resident will be asked to give many educational lectures to their colleagues throughout their residency year.
Grand Rounds: The resident will deliver a 1-hour CE lecture to the pharmacy staff regarding a topic in psychiatry. Allied health professionals are welcome to attend. Presentations are accredited for continuing education through California Accreditation for Pharmacy Education (CAPE).
M&M/ Medication Safety Related Topic: The resident is required to provide one medication safety related topic presented to pharmacists, faculty, preceptors, residents, students, and technicians. The resident will be assigned a topic and present during their Administration rotation. Topics will be assigned by the M&M preceptor, Medication Safety Specialist, Dr. Sally Rafie.
Psychiatry Clinical Forums/Journal Club: The resident is required to present 3 “mini” grand rounds and 3 journal club presentations during the year at our Psychiatry Clinical Forum. The mini grand rounds are 20-minute lectures on various didactic topics related to the ASHP supplemental standard for an Advanced Practice Residency in Psychiatry and will be relevant to the patient population the resident is currently involved with from a rotational perspective. The objective of journal club will be to select and critically review a recently published journal article related to psychiatry/neurology.
Outreach Presentation: Residents participate in community outreach programs addressing the public regarding neuropsychiatric disease prevention and wellness promotion.
In-Services: Residents are required to provide several medication and/or disease state in-services to medical teams, students, pharmacy preceptors and pharmacy staff as assigned by preceptors. Topics will be based on requests by the nursing or medical staff, recommendations from the resident, or assigned by the preceptor.
