Our pharmacy department consists of a central pharmacy, ICU, Peds and OR satellites. Our department provides 24-hour comprehensive pharmacy services. Our pharmacy team includes 60 pharmacists and 32 pharmacy technicians. Our clinical pharmacy staff includes unit-based/decentralized pharmacists including specialty services in Pediatrics, Neonatal Intensive Care, Critical Care, Emergency Care, Cardiology, Antimicrobial Stewardship, Psychiatry, Inpatient Oncology, and Outpatient Oncology who work collaboratively with physicians, nurses, and dieticians. We have a highly-trained diverse pharmacy staff that is made up of specialists, informatics system administrators, and unit-based pharmacists with a strong emphasis on clinical services. We offer 4-month block APPE rotations to University of Florida and LECOM students. In addition, we offer 1-2 month rotations to other universities from multiple states including Ohio, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota. Teaching and precepting are a department priority and a majority of the pharmacists serve as IPPE, APPE, and/or PGY-1 Residency preceptors.
At SMH, our preceptor group is comprised of pharmacy specialists and unit-based pharmacists. We strive to create a nurturing and supportive environment where our highly-qualified preceptors play the role of educators and mentors to prepare you for a community-based institutional practice. The residency offers a unique “real-life” experience, designed to prepare you for a unit-based hospital pharmacist position in a community hospital (Did you know that 95% of all the hospitals in Florida are community hospitals?) or a position in a PGY-2 or Fellowship program.
