The Omaha VA Medical Center is a tertiary facility that provides inpatient and outpatient health care through comprehensive primary care, medicine, surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, neurology, oncology, gynecology, dentistry and geriatrics. The Omaha VA has affiliations with two academic centers located in Omaha, Nebraska, UNMC and Creighton University. We have 4 PGY1 Pharmacy residents. The residency program is designed to develop clinical pharmacists who are confident in the provision of medication-related care to veterans with a wide range of conditions. The resident will provide drug information and education to veterans, other healthcare professionals and students. The resident will develop self-reflection and self-management skills throughout the year. The residency is flexible and provides the resident with a wide range of experiences to fit individual interests.
