Teamwork is an integral part of daily patient care activities, and the pharmacist is a vital member of the team. The teaching environment at UAB Medicine fosters learning and active participation in the process. We do not have a division distinction between “clinical” and “non-clinical” pharmacists.
All pharmacists perform clinical roles whether direct or indirect to provide high quality patient care. Teamwork in the Department of Pharmacy doesn’t just exist between pharmacy practitioners, teamwork is expected and present among pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, nurses, physicians and other health care professionals. It takes a team to heal a patient.
Why Our Pharmacy Team Loves Working at UAB Medicine
As a large academic medical center, UAB Medicine is the best place to practice pharmacy, because I’m able to work with students and residents on advancing clinical research related to medication therapy. I work with a tremendous group of pharmacists who have a similar desire to collectively advance our knowledge and provide the best patient care possible as a team.
The employee benefits and perks brought me to UAB Medicine. However, it is the leadership and culture, specifically within the Department of Pharmacy, that keeps me at UAB Medicine. In the five years I’ve been at UAB, I’ve experienced professional growth, and I feel supported, heard, and empowered to make a difference.
