This Albertsons Pharmacy/Idaho State University Program is based in Boise, Idaho, one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the US with amenities such as outdoor recreation, riverfront paths, parks, restaurants, museums, and music. Idaho is also a leading state for the advancement of pharmacy practice, and pharmacists can now administer and prescribe a growing list of medications.
Each resident is assigned a home-base community pharmacy site where approximately 40% of their time is spent. The first residency site is located in Boise's North End and was the first store opened by Joe Albertson in 1939. The second location is a newly constructed concept store located near the campus of Boise State University. Each site has a dedicated team of experienced preceptors to mentor the resident through the year. Both sites are located close to the Corporate and Division offices, where leadership and management and specialty care learning experiences take place. Our advanced community-based patient care learning experiences are supplemented with ambulatory care-based patient care with Terry Riley Health Services and St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center. Through our partnership with Idaho State University, the residents participate in a teaching certificate program and performs research at ISU's Meridian Campus. Our program's learning experiences have been specifically designed not only to ensure you have the skillset necessary for success immediately upon graduation, but also in the near-future when pharmacy practice has further advanced. These learning experiences allow room for adjustment based on your strengths, interests, development opportunities, and goals.
Pharm.D. degree and licensure in state of residency required. Official academic transcript, CV, letter of intent, and three letters of recommendation submitted to PhORCAS.
