Welcome, and thank you for your interest in our Pharmacy Practice Residency at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.
Facilities and Resources
At Baylor Dallas, our pharmacists are instrumental in delivering the best care possible. And our pharmacy provides our staff access to advanced technologies, continuing education and promising opportunities for personal and professional growth.
At Baylor, you can be your best with a system that supports you with choices rich in learning and cross-functional training. Because Baylor Dallas' Department of Pharmacy is an integral part of so many programs and departments within the medical center, its members play a key role in the interdisciplinary teams that provide patient care.
Our 14,000-square-foot Main Pharmacy includes the nerve center of pharmacy operations, a Class-10,000 sterile products laboratory, an Investigational Drug Services area, and a Drug Information Center.
The medical center's main pharmacy is augmented by two satellite pharmacies in the blood and marrow transplantation unit and the neonatal intensive care unit. All the pharmacy areas are staffed by pharmacists and certified pharmacy technicians.
Our decentralized services are provided by service line teams, which include clinical pharmacists, clinical specialists, and technicians in the areas of critical care, internal medicine/surgery, solid organ transplant, women's and children's health, oncology and cardiology. The staff in these areas are directly engaged in providing pharmaceutical care to our patients and serve as an immediate resource for the medical and nursing staffs concerning drug information and drug therapy review. Additional services provided by the department include a pharmacokinetic consult service, drug therapy management, formulary management, therapeutic substitution, patient education, drug information and protocol development.
The Baylor Dallas Pharmacy Department also provides support services for clinical research involving investigational drugs. Major areas of research include solid organ transplantation, blood and marrow transplantation, neonatology, anesthesia, and dermatology. Our pharmacists, in conjunction with the Institutional Review Board, help to assure that policies and procedures for the safe use of these drugs are established and followed.
