Pharmacy Residency FAQs

What are the staffing requirements and/or on-call requirements for the program?

Residents are required to staff a weekday afternoon (until 9:00 pm) every other week and work every third weekend. There is no on-call requirement.

What teaching opportunities are available?

Henry Ford Macomb Hospital is closely affiliated with Wayne State University, so precepting pharmacy students is an expectation of residents. The residents can also voluntarily participate in a longitudinal teaching program through Wayne State University, where they will have monthly meetings and workshops to enhance their teaching skills. If residents participate in the program, they will work with a professor to provide a lecture or problem-based learning (PBL) case for pharmacy students at Wayne State University.

Are your residents required to work holidays?

Residents are required to assist with holiday coverage during the residency year. The residents will each choose 2 of the following 4 holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, and Memorial Day. In the event that the residents cannot agree on whom will work which holiday, they will be assigned by the RAC. Holiday selections for the year must be submitted to the RPD/designee by the end of the incoming residents’ initial orientation.

Aside from the longitudinal rotations, orientation is 8 weeks long and each remaining rotation is 4 weeks in length.
