The community-based pharmacy residency is committed to providing residents with the skills and knowledge necessary to become exemplary community pharmacists providing care for a diverse group of patients. The goals of the program are to build upon the doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop community-based pharmacist practitioners with diverse patient care, leadership, and education skills who are eligible to pursue advanced training opportunities including postgraduate year 2 (PGY2) residencies and professional certifications.
This program emphasizes the development of advanced practical skills needed by community pharmacy practitioners concentrating on enhancing existing clinical services and implementing pharmacy practice programs. The experience is individualized to each resident to develop clinical, analytical, teaching, and leadership skills. Residents will have opportunities to provide patient care services including medication therapy management, immunizations, and disease state management. The residents will work in a collaborative environment with exposure to diverse clinical specialty areas, including solid organ transplant, infectious disease, geriatrics, oncology, and transitions of care. Opportunities to precept students and provide Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) programs are available. Collaboration with providers in an integrated health system will be emphasized through trans-disciplinary care to improve patient outcomes.
