Site Special Features:   

The University of Colorado Hospital is a tertiary care facility with a focus on cancer research, solid organ and bone marrow transplantation, HIV/AIDS research, and infectious diseases. Pharmacy services are decentralized, serving patients from numerous outpatient and inpatient satellites. Use of automation exposes the resident to an integrated model of patient care that emphasizes clinical services. Our close affiliation with the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences gives the resident an excellent opportunity to interact with faculty in advanced practice roles.
