There is a one FTE position available for Emergency Department (ED) pharmacist at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Rochester MN. The position is primarily evening shifts with the opportunity for day shifts, and every third evening weekend staffing responsibilities. All shifts are 10-hour shifts. 

Pharmacy services in the ED are provided 24/7/365 and include double-coverage and overlapping shifts. Responsibilities for ED pharmacists include providing quality, comprehensive bedside patient care as part of a multidisciplinary team, and response to ED codes. Clinical services consist of direct patient care at the bedside, provision of recommendations regarding drug therapy, and identification of drug-related problems.  Situational awareness and task prioritization in the ED are enhanced through electronic automated alerts for resuscitations (e.g., trauma, medical, stroke, STEMI, toxicology, procedural sedation, intubation). Active participation in medical decision-making is expected and valued, and a collaborative practice agreement exists in the ED. Pharmacists partake in medication ordering and drug preparation in emergent situations to facilitate patient care. Clinical consultations and resuscitations through emergency telepharmacy and telemedicine services support ED providers in the regional health care system. There are robust ED-based Behavioral Health, Observation Unit, EMS and Emergency Preparedness practices. Providing didactic lectures, simulation training and orientation for ED multidisciplinary team members is expected, as is precepting of pharmacy students, PGY1 and PGY2 EM / specialty learners.  

Involvement in scholarly activities including quality initiatives and research is expected in alignment with Mayo Clinic’s three shields (Practice, Education, Research) and is supported through extensive institutional and departmental resources.  Opportunity for academic appointment at hiring and progression through appointment ranks with years of service of employment.
