About the Program
This program offers in-depth training in pharmacy and health informatics, automation technologies, project management and interdisciplinary collaborations focused on medication-use processes. Broward Health has achieved a Stage 6 level ranking for the Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) and as of 2022 is one of only two healthcare systems in Florida to achieve a Stage 6 level ranking for the Adoption Model for Analytics Maturity (AMAM) from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
The Pharmacy Informatics program and its preceptors are focused on developing well-rounded, competent, and resilient Pharmacist Informaticists. During the resident’s year with our program, we engage in helping the resident develop healthy work-life balance and self-care habits, while still maintaining high levels of productivity and professional engagement.
By the end of this program residents will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to assume central roles in the field of pharmacy informatics. No clinical pharmacy staffing is expected of the resident. The resident is eligible for health, vision, dental and life insurance, among many other benefits that come with being a Graduate Medical Education employee at Broward Health.
