Palomar Health Pharmacy Residency Program
Preparing the Pharmacy Leaders of the Future
The Pharmacy Department provides comprehensive services on all three campuses, Palomar Medical Center (PMC) and Pomerado Hospital (POM). The facilities have implemented a completely automated distribution model, consisting of automated inventory management, robotic IV admixture and automated dispensing cabinets.
Clinical services include pharmacokinetics, anti-coagulation management, total parenteral nutrition, renal dosing, antibiotic utilization evaluation and investigational drugs. Additionally, a team of pharmacists on the units also provide discharge counseling and medication reconciliation for high-risk patients and post-operative orthopedic patients. There is also a team of ambulatory care pharmacists that manage patients in the community.
Palomar Medical Center also has an outpatient pharmacy that provides specialty drugs and a meds to beds program. PMC is a teaching site for the University of California, San Diego, University of the Pacific, KGI School of Pharmacy and primary site for the pharmacy residency program PGY1 and PGY2 Programs in Health-System Administration and Care Transitions. Serving on a host of committees and several rounding teams, pharmacists are vital members of the health-care team within Palomar Health.
