Pharmacy Service at Baptist North Mississippi
Our pharmacy supports the Pharmacy Practice Model Initiative, which is committed to forward-thinking practices that enhance patient care. Our goal is a clinical practice model with most pharmacists in direct, patient-care roles. Clinical pharmacy services currently include nutrition support, pharmacokinetics, renal dosing, anticoagulation, medication histories, ambulatory care and critical care.
The University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy
Baptist North Mississippi is less than two miles from the Ole Miss campus, uniquely positioning our pharmacy residency for academic affiliation. Founded in 1908, the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy is the state's only pharmacy program, and continues to be recognized for achievements in research, teaching and service.
The university has more than 180 faculty members, and pass rates on the NAPLEX for Pharm.D. graduates are among the top five programs nationally.
Residents work closely with the university faculty to develop teaching portfolios and complete a teaching certificate. Residents focus on the principles of teaching and learning and are provided with practical experience in an academic setting.
