Clinical Pharmacists Drug Information Services
Clinical Pharmacists provide comprehensive direct patient care services, collaborate and initiate clinical research, and promote rational drug therapy. Clinical services provided are tailored to patient care needs and include drug information, dosing advice, adverse reaction information, monitoring, pharmacokinetic monitoring and client education. Our pharmacists are trained to search the available veterinary and pharmacy literature in response to a wide variety of questions posed by VMTH faculty, staff and students, VMTH clients, outside clinicians, and the general public.

Clinical and Didactic Teaching
Clinical Pharmacists are also involved in teaching and training of veterinary students both in didactic courses and on rotations, VMTH staff, and pharmacy students performing intern clerkships from various schools of pharmacy. In addition, our pharmacists participate in the education of other practitioners in the veterinary and pharmacy fields by writing continuing education (CE) and presenting in person and online CE courses.
