Resources for Students

Pharmacy informatics is an integral discipline within the clinical informatics domain, centered on the effective management and delivery of medication related data, information, and knowledge across systems that support the medication-use process. Roles revolve around pharmacy informaticists' knowledge of pharmacy practice (clinical and operational), safe medication use, clinical decision-making, and the improvement of medication therapy outcomes, combined with understanding of the discipline of informatics and HIT systems. These resources are for pharmacy students, residents and those interested in gaining more insight into what informatics entails and learn about options for career paths.
