Patients are seen by appointment to receive a comprehensive medication therapy assessment and follow up to optimize their medication therapy.

Reporting to the Associate Dean, Undergraduate Studies and working with the Special Advisor, Practice Innovation, the successful candidate will be responsible for teaching within the undergraduate pharmacy program and working professional program for pharmacists (including, but not limited to, course coordination and teaching in pharmacy practice and therapeutics); and supervising and evaluating student performance on experiential placements and during teaching activities in the MTS Clinic. The successful candidate will also maintain clinical practice within the MTS clinic providing comprehensive medication assessments and follow up care to patients.

The successful candidate will be a pharmacist who is licensed (or eligible for licensure) with the Newfoundland and Labrador Pharmacy Board and has the authorization (or be eligible to be authorized) to administer injections and to prescribe as permitted by the Newfoundland and Labrador Pharmacy Board. Advanced training, such as a post-baccalaureate residency or PharmD program, and experience with charting in an electronic medical record would be assets. The successful candidate shall have 1-3 years’ experience practicing pharmacy and experience with teaching or acting as a preceptor to pharmacy students. Equivalent combinations of experience and training will be considered.

The ideal candidate will have excellent problem-solving ability and strong interpersonal skills, including oral and written communication ability.  Enthusiasm for clinical teaching and experience in providing constructive feedback to students are required. It is necessary to have experience in providing comprehensive medication therapy assessments, including motivational interviewing, identifying and prioritizing drug-related problems, developing and documenting drug therapy plans, and implementing patient follow up plans.  Candidate should be prepared to travel throughout the metro region when required.
