Lawrence + Memorial Hospital is home to a PGY-1 hospital pharmacy practice residency.
The Pharmacy Department serves the hospital as well as Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center in Waterford, Pequot Health Center in Groton and Westerly Hospital in Westerly, RI. It provides inpatient services (internal medicine, critical care medicine, emergency medicine, general and orthopedic surgeries, cardiac, pediatric, rehab, psychiatric, stroke and obstetrics) and outpatient services (anticoagulation clinic, infusion therapies and surgeries).
Pharmacists serve as preceptors for PharmD students from the University of Connecticut, University of Rhode Island, University of Saint Joseph, and Western New England College of Pharmacy. Pharmacists participate in numerous teaching and learning opportunities, including didactic lectures, advanced cardiac life support, and a teaching certificate. They engage in local and health system committees, along with multiple, high-impact clinical, financial and operational projects.
The pharmacy residency requires pharmacist licensure or eligibility for licensure for both Connecticut and Rhode Island.
