Inova has in-house retail pharmacies at three locations within our health system: Inova Fair Oaks Hospital, Inova Heart & Vascular Institute, and the Inova Schar Cancer Institute. The Schar pharmacy is both a retail and a URAC and ACHC accredited specialty pharmacy.
We have an integrated model of patient care which includes practice agreements with many providers to manage the prior authorization process for specialty medications. We provide MTM services with an emphasis on our specialty patients.
The Inova Fair Oaks and Inova Heart & Vascular pharmacies have a Meds-to-Beds program, in which prescriptions are filled and delivered to the patient’s rooms upon discharge. We work with the diabetes, HIV, and oncology clinics to provide patients with the medication, resources and education to manage their conditions.
Training Future Pharmacy Professionals
Our residents are prepared to develop and provide advanced patient care services with an emphasis on specialty medication delivery and patient education. At program completion, the resident will possess the knowledge, skills and experience to pursue a PGY2 program, a community or specialty pharmacy management position and professional certifications.
Currently, there is one PGY1 Community Resident position available.
Inova Pharmacy Plus Locations
Note: In addition to the Pharmacy Plus locations at Inova Heart and Vascular Institute and Inova Fair Oaks Hospital, and the specialty pharmacy located at Inova Schar Cancer Institute, students also practice at various clinics and departments (oncology, endocrinology, infectious disease) located at our hospitals.
