Summary

About Vidant Medical Center

Vidant Medical Center is a 900+ bed Level-1 Trauma Center, regional referral hospital and is the flagship hospital for Vidant Health. We serve as the teaching hospital for the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. Vidant Medical Center provides acute, intermediate, rehabilitation and outpatient services to more than 1.4 million people in 29 counties. But it's in our work environment that you'll find our sense of family and closeness that permeates everything we do.

Pharmacy Highlights

  • Well established decentralized clinical services throughout the institution
  • PGY1 residency program and PGY2 in critical care
  • Integrated electronic health record (EPIC) with CPOE
  • Training site for schools of pharmacy in North Carolina
  • Local, state and national educational opportunities

While VMC Department of Pharmacy has enjoyed a progressive and comprehensive pharmacy presence for many years, we too were moved by the call from ASHP and other industry leaders to prepare for the future. In 2011, a PPMI work group was formed to address the urgent need to proactively plan for changes in healthcare reform. Following a thorough evaluation of our current practices and systems we began the process of designing a new practice model that would support PPMI Summit consensus recommendations and meet the needs of our patients. The new, world-class practice model expands on our existing framework of robust clinical services and provides for both decentralized unit-based and service-based clinical pharmacy services via a system of seven integrated teams. These teams, comprised of both pharmacists and technicians, are supported by a dynamic central pharmacy team responsible for production of sterile products, inpatient chemotherapy, cart fills, inventory and automation. Most drug distribution is automated, using Robot-RX, medical carousels and unit-based automated dispensing cabinets.

  • We are currently recruiting for a pharmacist to join our team. Successful candidates will join a team of experienced practitioners working under the leadership of a team leader and clinical coordinator to ensure the safe and effective use of medications by providing optimal drug product selection, dosage regimen design, effective administration and drug therapy monitoring.
  • This pharmacist will practice in a decentralized pharmacy setting, working collaboratively with physicians and nurses to provide patient-focused care. Specific point-of-care services may include multidisciplinary rounds, CPOE order verification, admission and discharge medication reconciliation, discharge counseling for new or high risk medications, technician supervision for intake of admission medication histories, glycemic control, anticoagulation, pain control, and therapeutic drug monitoring. Team members will also provide training sites for the experiential education of pharmacy students from North Carolina schools of pharmacy as well as PGY1 pharmacy residents.
  • We are looking for motivated, compassionate individuals who are team players and possess excellent communication skills and strong work ethic.

Minimum Requirements

  • Applicants should possess a BS Pharm, MS Pharm or Pharm D.
  • NC Pharmacy license or eligible for licensure and licensed within two months of employment. Hospital Pharmacy experience preferred.
  • PGY1 and/or PGY2 residency training, with staffing experience, is highly preferred.
